Sandlings Safer Cycling Campaign

 

A group set up to campaign for the provision of safer cycle and pedestrian routes in the area known as the Suffolk Sandlings.

Our initial aim is to see the towns and villages of Aldeburgh, Saxmundham, Thorpeness, Aldringham, Knodishall, Snape, Friston, Leiston, Sizewell, Westleton and Eastbridge linked together with safe, preferably off-road, cycle-friendly routes.  These, in turn, may link with other routes further afield like Walberswick and Southwold.

To this end we have entered into dialogue with officers and councillors at Suffolk County Council, Suffolk Coastal District Council, the Suffolk Coasts and Heaths Unit, the various parishes, the consultants engaged in the development of Sizewell C nuclear power station and various land owners and businesses.

We have been successful in gaining a grant from Groundwork for £1000.  Also, our Waitrose Community Matters green token box raised £325 during May 2011.

WE NOW HAVE TWO LOCAL ROUTE GUIDES PUBLISHED - see the "Campaign Publications" page.

 

CHANCE TO RIDE AHEAD OF THE ELITE WOMEN RIDERS!

Calling all Cyclists.
Aldeburgh Music and Suffolk Coastal District Council are offering anyone with a bicycle the opportunity to cycle the last 1km of Stage 1 of the Women's Tour into Aldeburgh on Wednesday 17th June ahead of the Elite women riders.
In return for this fantastic opportunity, you will be required to take part in the Einse Brise for 111 cyclists. You will need a bicycle, a helmet, ideally a bell on your bike (we can provide this if required) and up for some fun.
Instructions and a rehearsal will take place in the morning of the race and then you will perform approximately an hour before they are due. We will cordon off an area for you to go so you have a good vantage point of the race for when the women come in.
