Outcomes of the AGM and the year ahead

Our AGM was held 14 May.  For those of you who didn’t attend, I was elected chairman and Jeremy Miller vice-chair. 

Jeremy has been chair of the Bicycle Institute for 6 years and in that time became well-known as the face of the Institute.  I’m sure we are all grateful for Jeremy’s contribution and welcome his continuing active role.

I also express my gratitude to Katie Gilfillan, who has stood down from the role as Vice-chair.  Katie was very active in that role, and in fact initiated the changing membership model that was outlined in a letter to you before the AGM.

Have your say on the new South Road corridor

The government is spending billions of dollars creating a 'non-stop corridor' of South Road. What will this mean for those who live along it, those who need to cross it to get to schools and shops or to visit friends etc? Unless we pressure the decision makers, the first corners to be cut will be the links across what will be a freeway. We know from the tram bridge across South Road that they’ll only provide cycling and walking infrastructure if they are made to. We need to make our voice heard. Our first chance will be at the information sessions for the Darlington section.
