As a local committee, we’re dedicated to ensuring a safer future of travel on our peninsula
The Shotley Peninsula Cycling Campaign was set up in 2010 to improve and increase the amount of cycling on the Shotley peninsula by making it easier and safer. Our priority is to create a safe off-road community path for cyclists, walkers, and wheelchair users between the Shotley Peninsula and Ipswich, and linking the villages on the peninsula. It should be attractive to those commuting into Ipswich, those travelling out to the peninsula to enjoy local beauty spots and to local school pupils alike. Walkers, wheelchair users and cyclists would all be encouraged to use the path, which would offer a healthier and greener alternative to the car and help relieve congested local roads. Initial signs of interest have been very encouraging and there is enthusiastic local support for this project, both from the many individuals and families who have joined the campaign, now well over 200, and also from the local schools which have aligned themselves with us.
By joining the SPCC membership list you will be helping us to become a stronger voice. With numbers behind us we have a greater chance of pushing through positive changes to the travel infrastructure on the peninsula.
It’s easy to join and membership is completely FREE!
