Thanx to all who attended the exhilarating CycleLINKS 0.2. We are thrilled by your support & passion for the transformation of Cape Town into a truly bicycle-friendly city.
For those who weren't able to attend, here is a rundown of the evening's highlights:
– The City is planning cycle lanes on Albert Rd.
(a main artery connecting the Southern suburbs & CBD). B.CPT has facilitated cyclists’ participation & input in the consultation process. A big thanks to Kyle Mason-Jones for coordinating feedback & ensuring B.CPT’s presence. To participate email email@example.com &
sign the online Petition
for safe cycle lanes.
– Thanks to the City of Cape Town (CoCT) representatives who reiterated the city’s support of B.CPT at the meeting. Conversations are underway to collaborate in the organization of Open Streets
as part of Transport Month in Cape Town. Open Streets is based on Bogota-Ciclovia, in which streets are closed to cars & opened to non motorised vehicles & people for part of the day, to exercise & interact. Open Streets will celebrate public spaces, cycling & community building. To those who signed up to volunteer & help out, stay tuned for next steps. Anyone who would still like to participate email firstname.lastname@example.org
Last but not least, people exchanged ideas about bike-sharing, linkages to public transport initiatives & the desire to build strength & momentum in our campaign.
Please continue to share your ideas
for the B.CPT campaign on our website & encourage your friends to Link Up
. Let’s keep the wheels turning to cover more ground before we meet at CycleLINKS 0.3
