Boris’ Gear Change for cycling

Very appropriate for Cycle Hayling’s 2020 vision, we’ve listed 20 ways Boris Johnson’s government Gear Change for cycling and walking has blown us away! Check them out here.

Help us build our 2020 vision

So Cycle Hayling is 10 years old, and what a year to start our next 10 years.

If the Covid-19 lockdown has taught us one-thing, it’s that plenty of us want to cycle, and stay healthy doing it, but that Hayling’s cycling infrastructure is still woefully inadequate for most people.

Boris’ Gear Change means Hayling can change too. Tell us what what cycling should be like on Hayling, what’s needed, and where. Help us set priorities.

Help us now to build our 2020 vision here .

Government copies our Revive-A-Bike scheme!

Well, we were ahead of the game – our £50 Revive-A-Bike has done its work and now been superseded by the government £50 ‘Fix your bike’, but the 28 bikes we revived have been riding round the island for the last 2 months.

Thank you Councillor Lance Quantrill and Hayling Cycles. Full details here.

We’re starting up Cycle Havant

All of Hayling’s transport decisions are made in Havant Borough Council, and yet they don’t have any single body representing cycling and walking that they can talk to. So we’re just starting Cycle Havant to do just that, just on Facebook initially. Come and sign up here.

And we’re working on Cycle Hampshire

And because many of Havant’s transport decisions are made in Hampshire County Council, who also don’t have any single body representing cycling and walking, we’re working on that too.
