Political influence

Vote bike 3We recognise that we need to work constructively with local elected representatives and council officers to progress our 6 priorities of funding, protected routes, road repairs, bike parking, image of cycling, and planning consultations.

We will improve our links with local councillors and transport officers in particular.

We will also continue to campaign for cycling to be a key issue at elections such as the May 2017 Oxfordshire County Council elections, including through our election surveys.

Cyclox supports Cycling UK’s ‘Vote Bike’ campaign to help voters identify pro-bike candidates.

The Cyclox lead for this is our chair Simon Hunt – please email him at contact@cyclox.org if you can help with this important priority.
