Your Christmas Gift to improve cycling & walking for others



On Wednesday 6th of December, view the Burpham Active Travel Scheme in 3D anytime between 6 & 8pm at George Abbot School Woodruff Ave, Guildford GU1 1XX.

Complete the SCC consultation at  before 15th December.

The scheme is fully funded but needs your support, whilst not perfect, it’s real and it will lead to other cycle improvements,

It may not be your home turf, but it is WSCC often used route from Guildford to Send, Ripley, RHS Wisley and Cobham.  As a WSCC group, our speed may warrant we stick to the road (we fought to prevent mandating cycle path use in the new Highway Code), but we should not withhold our support for others who may grow to join us.

WSCC benefit from the safety and confidence cycling as a group, that is something less available to commuters and beginner cyclists.   Walkers of all ages will benefit from constant height path without kerbs and the scheme is expect to reduce schools’ traffic.  .
If you have ideas for other improvements
