"SORRY, I DON'T HAVE TIME TO DRIVE"

WELCOME TO THE FARNHAM CYCLE CAMPAIGN

We want to create cycle tracks that are separate from the road and will encourage a significant volume of people want to start using them on bikes and scooters (electric, push and mobility) each day. We aim to link large areas of housing with major Farnham destinations such as schools, stations and town centres via tracks. The councils are still considering our plans but we need more public support so please follow us on Facebook and Twitter (@CycleFarnham). We regulary post some amazing info about cycling from around the world.

FCC PRESENTATION TO SURREY HIGHWAYS 17th January 2020

  • Case studies of 2 cities changed by cycling

  • FCC 4 proposals to reduce pollution

  • Farnham pollution levels 

Here is a copy of the presentation.​

Farnham needs and HGV ban!

40 tonne lorries have no place in a small market town centre. The supermarkets wouldn't be affected if their HGVs left the town on the same route that they entered, with a 7.5 tonne ban only on Downing St, The Borough and Union Road.

Our train station survey on 22nd October, collected 667 votes in favour of the Farnham Cycle Superhighway and only 136 against, so 5:1 in favour and potentially up to 1300 cycle jounrneys per day using it.

 

HOW COULD THIS AFFECT YOU?

HOW YOU CAN MAKE THIS HAPPEN

It's simple and takes just 5 minutes! Please email your local Farnham Town Councillor and tell them that you want to be able to cycle across the town centre without going on the road i.e. using cycle tracks. Their email addresses are here https://democracy.farnham.gov.uk/mgMemberIndex.aspx?bcr=1

WELCOME TO THE FARNHAM CYCLE CAMPAIGN

Farnham's road congestion probably won't get much better when the Covid-19 pavement widening restrictions are removed. This photo is from September without the traffic cones and we have many photos that are similar from 2019. So why not cycle into town from now on. Stationary cars are even safer for cyclists but imagine what it would be like if Farnham had segregated cycle tracks. Please email your local Surrey County Councillor and Town Councillors if you want to make this happen quickly in Farnham.

FARNHAM NEEDS A BAN ON HGVs

40 tonne lorries have no place in the centre of a small market town. We need to ban them under the special Government Covid emergency rules.  The supermarkets wouldn't be affected if their HGVs left the town on the same route that they entered, with a 7.5 tonne ban only on Downing St, The Borough and Union Road.

Anyone adult from Farnham can now borrow our very own electric-assist bike to experience how amazing it is to 'make hills disappear'. AND IT'S ALL FREE. Just check out our new page!

We also have a 3 minite video explaining the bike and the scheme. Coronavirus update: we treat the bike with disinfectant after each loan. Cycling is the best form of exercise during the crisis especially for older poeple

Here is the latest proposal for a a cycle track through the centre of Farnham. The route from Station Hill, Hickleys Corner via South Street to Park Row and then would be located behind the parking spaces on Castle Street until it is opposite Long Garden Walk to join the existing Scholars Greenway to reach the UCA university.

There's a new bike shop in town.  The Electric Cycle Cafe which is also an artisan coffee shop and has artisan tea too!
