St Albans Cycle Campaign (STACC) is campaigning for people cycling in St Albans and the surrounding area, including Harpenden, Redbourn, London Colney, Wheathampstead & Sandridge:
To encourage cycle usage in the St Albans District
To promote cycling to play a more significant role in a balanced transport system for the St Albans District
To support, assist and influence to local authorities responsible for managing the transport system in the St Albans District.
Our approach is to work co-operatively with key bodies such as the local authorities whilst lobbying for better funding and provision for cyclists with particular regard to cycle paths & routes, lower speed limits & cycle-parking.
The Government recognises that cycling is important for both transport and exercise in this pandemic-emergency situation.
In support of this, cycle shops are currently permitted to remain open – but you should check in advance if there are any special arrangements your local cycle shop has before visiting, as they need to protect their staff and customers.
You are advised to stay at home as much as possible, only venturing out for essential journeys, including exercise, while taking extra care to avoid any mis-haps that could burden the NHS, and practising social distancing to minimise infection spread.
