Space for Cycling: The Big Ride
Sat 11 June 2016, 10:30 – 12:30 BST
A public demonstration to Sheffield City Council of the need to improve cycling infrastructure and support the Space for Cycling campaign, which asks for:
- Protected space on main roads
- Removing through motor traffic in residential areas
- Lower speed limits
- Cycle-friendly town centres
- Safe routes to school
- Routes through green spaces
Start and finish is at Devonshire Green, Devonshire Street, Sheffield, S3 7SW. Please gather from 1030 for a 1100 start.
Please wear something red and bring a bell or whistle or horn to make some joyous noise.
The route is approximately 2.5km long, generally very flat and circles the city centre, passing the Town Hall. With so many riders (there were almost 500 in 2015) it is likely to take around 1 hour to complete.
