Highland Cycle Campaign is delighted to announce that its new website has been launched.
The site, at www.highlandcyclecampaign.org, will provide news and views from committee members and others, focusing on campaigning issues to improve facilities for people who choose to travel by bike in Inverness and the Highlands.
As well as background information about HCC, there is also an events calendar to highlight upcoming events for the group as well as other cycling and campaigning-related events in the area.
HCC convener John Davidson said: “The new website gives us a place to focus our campaigns and provide clear information about our aims and objectives. It also gives members an opportunity to keep up to date with what the committee is working on, all in a modern, easily accessible format.”
The launch comes after a new committee was elected at the group’s AGM in April. The existing committee members were re-elected plus two new members were added, Dr Katie Walter and Mick Heath. Mick is the new secretary while Duncan Tullis continues as treasurer. John Davidson replaced Brian Mackenzie as convener.
The long-running organisation is continuing to fight for better provision for cyclists in the area and is currently campaigning for an improved active travel corridor along the A82 through Inverness.
Earlier this year it also led a project to install an information and map panel on the National Cycle Network beside the Kessock Bridge. The panel gives cyclists using the route more information about the area, the national cycle routes that pass through Inverness and the Beauly Firth Loop – a 27-mile on-road circuit of the firth.
The project was funded by Sustrans’ ArtRoots fund and made possible with additional help from members of Cycling UK Highland group, Bear Scotland and Highland Council.
