There is a new Twitter account for Oxfordshire Cycling: @OxonCyclingNet https://twitter.com/OxonCyclingNet #OxonCycleNet

The Oxfordshire Cycling Network (OCN) is an umbrella group to provide a unified vision and voice for cyclists in Oxfordshire at a county level. It is made up from representitives of cycling organisations in the county and HarBUG is an active member. OCN is represented on the County Council’s active travel steering group and the Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership’s transport steering group.

Please note the date of  Sunday 22nd April when there will be a gathering of cyclists at County Hall in Oxford at 2pm to promote the proposal and to get support from County councillors. It would be great if HarBUG members could join in and show support. More details closer to the date.

OCN will be asking County Council candidates to support Space for Cycling, to Plan, Invest and Build a network like this.

The OCN proposal, is based on a sound economic basis.  The benefits in health and travel time would be many times the investment.  London, Cambridge, Bristol and most recently Cheshire have all seen these benefits and are investing to gain them
