Creating a Cycling Culture in Wolverhampton.
Wolves On Wheels Cycle Campaign works in a number of areas :-
The Campaign's main aim is the creation a cycling culture in the Wolverhampton area.
We lobby local, regional and national government, and collaborate with them as well as other agencies and organisations in order to promote the following issues:-
- The rights of cyclists and cycle users
- The promotion of cycling as a mode of transport available to all
- Road safety including the education of all road users
- The integration of cycling with other modes of public transport. Bike 2 Rail has been a major area with some notable campaign successes with Virgin Trains at the Station.
WoWcc works with the local highway authority to ensure high quality cycle-friendly infrastructure and cycle parking facilities are implemented.
A strength of the campaign is that it has all the local representatives of the CTC Right To Ride network (the campaigning arm of the CTC which is the national cycling organisation) as active members. They represent all local cyclists in their work.
Wolves on Wheels has a Sustrans Community Ranger Group. The rangers work on promoting and surveying the National Cycle Network routes (NCN 81 and the Wolverhampton cross-city route).
We believe in cycle training for all. New and returning cyclists will always have a portion of their journey on the highway and need to learn high quality cycling skills. WoWcc is working with the Council and the Wildside Activity Centre on child, teenager and adult cycle training.
We love going for social rides and days out by cycle. Wolves BUG is our sister organisation for cycling for fun and fitness.
