Cycle Campaign 2018

A family cycling in York

York Cycle Campaign is a non political organisation but one which we very much support. In 2017 Green Party members actively supported the launch of a re-invigorated group to have more impact in the city.

Do you know a part of York where the infrastructure just isn’t quite right? Is there a junction that you think could be improved? Do you regularly come across a barriers that make your journey difficult, or impossible? If so, we want to know about it.

That’s why York Cycle Campaign has started using Cyclescape, an online mapping tool, to allow you to highlight your trouble spots so that on a regular basis we can take your concerns to the local authority and discuss ways in which they can be resolved.

Create an account

To start logging issues you must first create an account. Fortunately the good people of Cyclescape have created a step-by-step guide to help you with this. Once you’ve created your account you can join the York Cycle Campaign group by either visiting us  or searching for the group in the search bar and clicking ‘Join this Group’. We have to approve your request, but normally this gets done in 24 hours. Once a member we’ll be able to see your issues, but you’ll also be able to see and add comments to issues other members have added if you agree or have more to add.

Log an issue

We’re interested in anything that you come across in the York area that impacts on cycling around the city. This could be many things, such as:

    • A sudden end to a cycle lane,
    • A badly placed barrier,
    • A one way street that could have an ‘Except Cyclists’ exemption.

To log your issue, click Issues on the top green menu bar.

Make sure it says ‘York Cycle Campaign’ on the right hand side of the menu bar, not ‘No Group’ or the name of another group, that way we get notified of your issue.
