Cycling Initiative

Cycling is clean, healthy and very cheap.

One reason more Balsall Heathans don’t cycle at present  is fear of not having something solid to lock the bike to when you arrive at your destination.

Some of us signed a petition about this and it went to Sparkbook Ward Sub Committee at the end of 2009. The Council’s Transportation Department have now said they will install cycle stands at 4 additional sites on-highway in 2010. These cannot be less than 400 metres apart. But other organisations could install some on their own land. Perhaps you can raise this where you work, shop or visit ?

John Newson can help to put forward such proposals, and any other suggestions to encourage more people to cycle – email BHIOP[at]

A Balsall Heath Cycling Initiative is being planned by various organisations in the neighbourhood. More details to come.
