Cycling

TTT have just started a cycling group to promote cycling in Taunton and help to inform and improve cycling infrastructure.

Taunton Transition wanted to build a picture of cycling in and into the town and carried out a survey in Summer 2016. Another aim of the survey was to see there is sufficient interest to form a new cycle group to represent cyclists locally.
Over 300 surveys were received, and a meeting attended by over 30 people took place on 13 September. A new group was formed. We are still working out some of the details including the best name to adopt and early priorities. One of these is likely to be an event to present the survey findings to the local authorities. The results are in the ‘What people are saying’ section.
We welcome people who would like to join the group. If you would like to become a supporter/group member. please e mail us at : tauntontransition5@gmail.com
Please see separate site for more information and results of the survey.
