Event description

Description

**Key Note Speaker Phil Jones from Phil Jones Associates (PJA) on new DfT infrastructure guidelines**

Phil will be speaking about the new cycling infrastructure technical note that PJA are developing for the Department of Transport (DfT). This will set the standard for cycling infrastructure for the next few years. This will be of significant interest to cycle campaigners and local authority officers. PJA have also been heavily involved with the development by local authorities of local cycling and walking infrastructure plans or LCWIPs for DfT. Phil will present for an hour.

Andrew Saffrey from PJA is also scheduled to attend. Andrew has been working on local cycling and walking infrastructure plans.

This should be a fascinating and illuminating session.

There will be a short presentations on air quality and its role in promoting cycling. We also hope to discuss the role of E Bike hire schemes.

The event will include campaign updates and lessons learnt from campaign groups attending.

The afternoon session will include a visit to Bike Back Derby, run by Life Cycle who offer training and recycled bikes. There will be a ride alongside NCN R6 to Derby's Velodrome and then the national standard BMX track. Both of these are highly impressive.

The East Midlands Cycle Forum brings together cycle campaigners from across the region. The aim is to share experiences and knowledge. The aim is to create a stronger sense of a cycling campaigning community and improve cycling in the region.
