The Environment Agency, in planning flood-prevention works has submitted a planning application that involves the closure of Terry Avenue – for 18 months! I rather suspect that this plan has been formulated by someone in an office far from York, who knows nothing about York and almost certainly nothing about cyclists and cycling, and has simply settled on the easiest, most obvious answer to a problem. Their alternative route for cyclists involves Skeldergate Bridge, New Walk and – depending on the direction of travel – St George’s Field car park or Tower Gardens . This is intimidating, excessively long, and actually quite technically difficult in places for some users (I’ve seen at least one person doing the school run along Terry Avenue with kids in a Bakfiets; I wouldn’t want to try riding one of those over Blue Bridge). I think it’s also questionable whether some parts of that route, such as Tower Gardens, can safely cope with such a big increase in cycle traffic.
The planning application, where you can object.
The petition covered in today’s Press should be available to sign at Cycle Heaven from tomorrow (Wednesday 22nd May).
Please see the notice below from Andrew Richardson:
I have agreed to lead the same ride as last year at York Rally, on behalf of Wednesday Wheelers. The date is Saturday 22 June. It would be good if I could again have a few volunteers to help in case we get large numbers. A back marker/ leader if we have to split the group would be good. I am assuming that the start time will be 9.10 as last year from the Knavesmire, but I will confirm it later. We will be back by lunchtime.

My name is Aaron and I’m getting in touch from the RAF Benevolent Fund – an organisation that supports the RAF Family with emotional, practical and financial welfare support.
We’re celebrating our 100th anniversary in 2019 and as such we’re involved with a number of events in Yorkshire. Most notably the Tour de Yorkshire next weekend.
We have a small number of places left in the team and I’m emailing to find out whether you have anyone in the club keen to take part. The deadline for registering to ride with the RAF Benevolent Fund is Tuesday 30th May and as places are limited, it will be first come first served. It’s a really exciting time to be involved and what better way than to ride through the county of Yorkshire.
It’s only £25 to register and all we ask is that each rider can raise a minimum of £175. In return we will kit you out with one of our exclusive centenary cycling jersey.
More info and to register, head to our Tour de Yorkshire webpage – https://www.rafbf.org/event/tour-de-yorkshire-ride
We look forward to welcoming you to the team!
