St Albans Cycle Campaign

STACC is campaigning for cyclists in the St Albans area

Report on the #SustFest19 meeting on Healthy Streets is now available.  It was a great evening, Caroline Russell is an inspiring speaker and we are fizzing with ideas to make our streets better for people. Do get involved!

Your help with campaigning work needed!  The campaign field we would most like to develop is commenting at an early stage on planning applications, with regards to provision of cycle routes and storage for cycles on the premises.  We need members to help with this!

HCC Local Transport Plan, LTP4 includes pretty well everything we as a cycle campaign would like to see happen - reduced car dependency, more active travel, more public transport.  A key feature is the need for County and District / Borough Councils to work together to co-ordinate inter-acting strategies. We are working with other cycling groups in the county on this and other issues, under the CycleHerts banner.

Here are the 'tube maps'  - proper name Cycling Network Quality Maps.  They are diagrammatic picture of conditions for cycling, not a route-finding map.  They are a work in progress, both in terms of assessing the network and - we hope and campaign for - needing to be updated as conditions are improved.  They are based on the CycleBath format, and the idea is to 'turn the map blue'.  Or green if looking at the St Albans city map.  Three different map-makers, so three different styles.  Feedback and comments very welcome.



This version extends further to include local villages:

SustFest continues, and (in our view!) the highlight of week three is on Wednesday 29th May - the STACC Healthy Streets meeting, with Caroline Russell.  The venue is Marlborough Road Methodist Church St Albans AL1 3XG.  Doors open 7.30pm, talk starts 8.00pm.  You can hear STACC's Nick Clarke being interviewed about Healthy Streets on Radio Verulam's Environment Matters show via the podcast.  Flier is attached.

We had a great day out at the Market Takeover, got lots of feedback and handed out so many maps we had to go and get some more.  STACC's Rona Wightman was one of a number of people at the event who was interviewed by UK Health Radio's Mike Dilke, available to listen to from Tuesday.  

Who needs a map if you have a long dress and nerve though - see Mr Punch cartoon attached!

Another reminder:  #SustFest19 free event with Caroline Russell, on Healthy Streets.  The meeting is on Wednesday 29th May, 7.30 for 8.00pm, at the Methodist Church, Marlborough Road, St Albans.  We will have lots of flyers for the Healthy Streets talk at the Market Takeover in St Peters Street, St Albans on Sunday 19 May.  Do come along and pick up some flyers.  Listen out for an interview with STACC on Radio Verulam Environment Matters on Wednesday 22 May.

If you have time to help on the STACC stall, that would be great.  It is fun and not too demanding.  We are sharing a stall with the South Herts Cyclists - our combined stall will cover both sustainable transport and sustainable holidays, with advice on local routes and cycle touring.  We will be featuring our proposals for improving the cycling network in St Albans, and will be seeking comments and suggestions

We also highlight the Harpenden Neighbourhood Plan Group #SustFest19 event in Harpenden on Tuesday 21st May, 7:30pm about the Neighbourhood Plan that was completed in February. The event is also free but does require booking at www.sf19nplan.eventbrite.com.


There are lots of events in #SustFest19 programme, covering a wide range of sustainability issues.  There are walks, talks, cycle rides, visits, demonstrations and opportunities to get involved in all sorts of activities.  More on the Sustainable St Albans website.
