30 October deadline for comments on ECC Cycling Strategy


We want cyclists to comment on ECC's Cycling Strategy 2015, which sets out a long term plan to increase cycling in Essex.

The aim is to establish cycling in the public’s mind as a ‘normal’ mode of travel, especially for short a-to-b trips, and as a major participation activity and sport for all ages.

The consultation is still open until the 30 October, so please make sure you respond so they get as much feedback as possible from Colchester cyclists.

Here is the draft Essex Cycling Strategy Once you have read it as an individual you can complete the online survey or if your organisation wants to respond you can write to:
