Annual General Meeting 2018

Look out for HarBUG’s AGM – coming soon!

The AGM is a great opportunity to raise cycling issues, and have your say.   Date, location and agenda to follow.

HarBUG needs your support.

HarBUG works with local authorities to try to ensure the ‘cycling’ voice is heard – particularly in planning decisions.  The more support we have, the better HarBUG can influence things.

We also organise two cycle-to-work days each year, with free breakfasts and guided rides.  These can only happen with the help of HarBUG volunteers.

We want to be there to help and support anyone considering cycling to work.

The AGM will include the election of HarBUG’s committee, and a review of HarBUG’s accounts.  Come along and join the committee!

Help HarBUG to be as effective and influential as we can be.

Launch of The Claudia Charter for Safer Cycling in Oxford

Message posted on behalf of Broken Spoke Bike Co-op from Oxford:

This Thursday, Nov 9th, come to the launch of The Claudia Charter for Safer Cycling in Oxford at Tap Social (Curtis Estate, off Botley Road, near Seacourt Park & Ride, Oxford).

Six months ago, our friend Claudia Comberti was killed while riding her bike on Botley Road. Since the collision, we’ve been working together to develop The Claudia Charter, for a safer, friendlier, and more collaborative environment on Oxford’s roads.

We know that Oxford is full of people who walk, ride, and drive on our city’s roads. We also know that a lot of people want to feel safer on their daily journeys. If this includes you then we would love you to join us!

  • Doors will be open from 5.30pm to anyone interested in finding out more about Claudia, the Charter, and what’s next.
  • From 6.45pm there will be a few short speeches. Tap Social will be open until 11pm.

We know that the 9th will be a difficult day for many. You are welcome to simply pop-in on your way home, stay for a pint, or join us for the whole evening.

The Claudia Charter has been collaboratively created by Broken Spoke, Cyclox, two of Oxford’s City Councillors, members of the University of Oxford’s Environmental Change Institute, and friends of Claudia.

For more information and updates see The Claudia Charter Facebook page.

Illegal Use of Winnaway Path

Posted by Guy W on behalf of A Iwi

Dear cyclists,

This morning while walking on the Winnaway, I was passed by a motorcycle on the footpath. Obviously this is illegal, and also unpleasant and potentially dangerous for other users of the path.
This should be addressed while still relatively uncommon, and not allowed to escalate, so please can you report any similar incidents to the police, particularly with any camera footage you may have. I imagine they might not do much on the first report, but hopefully will do if the same registration is reported by multiple people. There is a reporting form at https://reportonline.thamesvalley.police.uk/

The incident occurred on the hill, and I couldn’t see from there whether the rider was going to a property on the Winnaway or continuing towards the labs. But even if it was a local resident, the footpath is not a private track. The surface of a public footpath belongs to the council by law, and it was resurfaced at public expense for unmotorised use. It is open to the residents to resurface their private road adjacent to the footpath for more comfortable use by motor vehicles if they so wish.

Thank you,
Alan
