Purpose of the External Board/Outside Body:




The Cycle Forum (now the Maidstone Cycle Campaign Forum) exists to improve liaison between cycling organisations and to work towards better facilities for Cyclists. It organises events, comments on Cycling issues and presents views on Planning Issues



The next meeting, which will be after this Committee Meeting is an Open Meeting at the Community Centre in Marsham Street at 7.30pm on 15th July, which will amongst other things showcase some of the best practice seen at the recent Cycle Summit between MBC, KCC and various Cycling Organisations. Elsewhere the Forum has been involved in consultation on the Mote Aenue Cycleway and has been pursuing other improvements, such as on the A20

It is currently also heavily involved in planning for the next Maidstone Cyclefest on 28th September in Jubilee Square..
