Thought you guys might be interested to know that there is now a new Chelmsford Cycling Charter, currently hosted on the City Council website. A number of local cycling clubs such as Chelmer and Athlon have signed up to it already. My understanding is that the cycling charter is a simple statement of support for everyday cycling as the means of making Chelmsford a better place.
Please see link below for further information.
We’ve been asked whether DCC would like to support the charter, sign up and have our organisation’s logo as a .jpg or .png to display on the webpage or in any other promotion of the charter.
I’ve read the charter and personally feel they have missed an opportunity to declare loud and clear that all road users especially motorised vehicles should respect each other and put safety first. However, it’s a step in the right direction in promoting cycling and therefore, I’d be happy for DCC to sign up to the charter unless there is any objections from members.
Please leave any comments here or on the club members WhatsApp page.
