The Active Withernsea team is proud to be working with a team of community members to improve cycling in Withernsea.
The team have held three video conference calls in June, open to anyone, to discuss the topic of cycling in Withernsea and how it can be improved.
The discussions have been wide ranging and a number of themes are emerging around cycling in Withernsea.
These include; safety (road safety and signage, training and equipment), cycling routes (including the railway tracks), combining walking and cycling together (to make sure cyclists and walkers complement each other), training, skills, tourism and economic impact (cycling to work, e-bikes and training opportunities) and types of cycling (for those with disabilities or additional needs as well as mountain biking and road biking).
Speaking about the meetings Active Withernsea engagement officer, Jennifer Lount, said: "It's been brilliant to see the community come together to talk about cycling.
"We've got lots of people passionate about cycling in the town and lots of expertise to tap in to.
"It's great to see so many different points of view represented, from families who need a safe place to cycle and those just getting back on their bikes right through to those who are really enthusiastic riders.
"The discussions have brought together lots of viewpoints and I'm really excited about the energy to make cycling in Withernsea something everyone can enjoy."
A number of actions have been agreed through the discussions including setting up a working group, asking Active Withernsea to find out more about road safety and the railway tracks from East Riding of Yorkshire Council and to find examples of great cycling schemes and best practice.
