Useful campaign links and resources

    The thought occurred that it would be useful to have a sticky where people can post links to useful campaign and policy websites. There are some sites that were regularly mentioned in the old C+ campaign forum (RIP), so having them in a sticky would avoid the need to keep re-posting.

    Here's some useful policy and infrastructure websites:

    Cycling England's Design Checklist and design guidance- following the hierarchy of measures that advocates on-road cycle provision before off-road infrastructure.

    LTN 1/04 - Policy, Planning and Design for Walking and Cycling
    This document sets out the policy context that supports the promotion of pedestrian and cycling facilities. It also describes common design principles for pedestrian and cycle provision.

    LTN 2/04 - Adjacent and Shared Use Facilities for Pedestrians and Cyclists
    Useful guidance on when shared use is appropriate and what standards are needed if this is to be done.

    in particular note:
    Annex D: Code of Conduct Notice for Cyclists
    which very usefully states that: Ride at a sensible speed for the situation and ensure you can stop in time. As a general rule, if you want to cycle quickly, say in excess of 18 mph/30 kph, then you should be riding on the road.

    TfL's Cycling Design guidance


    Also of great importance for those advocating on-road cycling:

    Bikeability- the new national standard for child cycle training.

    Anyone got other useful links to add? What do you think about having a sticky for this?

    Most local Cycling campaigns are a mine of useful information, but I find that the best one for advice in dealing with accidents ( a common request with new and inexperienced riders) is the London Cycling Campaign

    "What to do in a collision"

    I have all the main points on a small laminated card as an "Aide Memoire" - should it ever happen as I know that with the andrenaline kicking in it will keep me focussed on the essentials.

    frequently updated guide to bikes on trains.

    http://www.tfl.gov.uk/assets/downloads/corporate/Guidance-residential-travel-planning-2008.pdf

    guidance from TfL on residential travel plans. Some very, very distinguished contributors. I name no names......

    http://www.dft.gov.uk/pgr/sustainable/manforstreets/

    Manual for streets. It's a bit of a read, but the essential thing is to get the fundamentals. Transport planners tend to gravitate to the bit at the back which deals with pavement widths, but, if you're looking at a planning application in your neighbourhood, and wondering whether it can be anything better than car-based, or working out what might make it more convivial then this isn't a bad place to start.

    http://www.sustrans.org.uk/default.asp?sID=1090834683408

    Sustrans guide to sustainable neighbourhoods - sort of in the making. Again, there is at least one top-notch person involved here......
