Re-Launch of Cycle Lewes

By Dave - Posted on 09 March 2013

The email below was received from the Cycle Lewes group to promote their re-launch, which is quite timely given that the construction on the cycle path will commence soon. 

Dear Cycle Lewes members and friends

Just a reminder that there will be a relaunch event for Cycle Lewes on
Thursday, 14th March from 7.30 to 9pm in the upstairs meeting room at the
Lewes Arms. 

The relaunch working group would like to hear what people want from Cycle


* Would you like to get back on your bike?
* Are you a keen cyclist?
* Do you want cycling in Lewes to be safer?
* Do you want to be part of a group?

I attach a poster for the event. Please do forward this message and invite
along friends, neighbours and colleagues you think might be interested. If
you can't make it, but would like to contribute, please let us know your
ideas and comments.

Because of limited availability among the original founding members, some of

whom have moved away, Cycle Lewes has been largely maintained as an

information base (map and website) in recent years, commenting on
consultations and issues as they come up, rather than an active campaigning
or riding group. Now that there is an upsurge of interest a new cluster of
individuals is emerging to take the group forward. The purpose of the
re-launch is to explore what the key issues are, what solutions there might
be, what skills and interest and time members and potential members have and
to ask for individuals to agree to take on key tasks around likely work
areas. These might include:

* Chair 
* Secretary
* Treasurer 
* Campaigns 
* Infrastructure
* Events/Rides
* Web Lead
* Publicity 

This list is illustrative and would depend on those coming forward - some
tasks could be merged together, some activities might be covered by other
groups. There would also be opportunity to consider links with Cycle
