The next Ryedale Cycle Forum will be held on Tuesday 6th November at 11am at Ryedale House, Ryedale District Council. There will be an open drop in session from 10.30am to discuss any related matters prior to the beginning of the meeting.
Cycle England has launched a grant scheme to further enhance cycling facilities across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.
The £100,000 grant fund will be used to help support businesses interested in improving facilities for cyclists, including cycle parking, storage, changing facilities, route signage and e-bike hire.
The grants provide local businesses with an opportunity to tap into Yorkshire’s thriving cycling market and improve their own facilities whilst contributing to the enhancement of the local infrastructure.
The new cycling holidays will focus on some of Yorkshire’s long-distance cycle routes, including the Way of the Roses, Yorkshire Dales Cycle Way and the Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Route.
Cycle England was one of a number of projects to receive funding from the UK Government’s £40 million Discover England Fund.
The cycling project aims to create new bookable cycling packages for Dutch and German leisure cyclists.
Packages will include accommodation, attractions, transport, bike hire and other elements which contribute to a cycling holiday.
The Discover England Fund is administered by VisitEngland and is a central government funded programme of activity, supported by match funding by partners in the public and private sectors.
Grant applications will be considered from individuals, businesses, charities and other organisations who wish to enhance cycling experiences across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.
The grant scheme has three priority areas:
1. Increase e-bike hire availability and facilities
2. Improve cycling facilities and infrastructure
3. Enhance the signage on key cycling routes
To find out more and take advantage of this exciting opportunity please download the guidance notes here and application form here. The first round of funding closes on Friday 16th November. To discuss further please contact Georgina Bartlett on 07786 542 879 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The cycle forum mascots will be out to watch the Ryedale Rumble this Sunday at Ryedale School, Nawton, nr Helmsley. Created to raise awareness of the need for investment in cycle provision in Ryedale, they’ll be located around the school. Come and say hello if you see them!
Donations for local cycle tracks can be made via “Kirkbymoorside Environment Group” bank account 60-16-30 81074077 or via Paypal account email@example.com
New secure cycle parking facilities have been installed at Malton train station, in a partnership between TransPennine Express, North Yorkshire County Council and Ryedale District Council.
Providing an 25 per cent uplift compared to the previous facility, the new 48 space shelter offers cycle parking in a secure area covered by CCTV. The racks have been positioned on the main platform at Malton station with easy step free access provided.
The new cycle racks are designed to encourage customers of train services to cycle to the station rather than drive, helping to reduce road congestion in the Malton and Norton area.
Find attached a plan showing a proposed Prohibition of Motor Vehicles on Barton Hill to The Belt, Barton-le-Willows.
