Steve has been the voice of CTC in Jersey since June 2002, having been determined to see the network of quiet roads on the island supported by an infrastructure that meets all needs of current and potential cyclists. Volunteer Steve Carpenter
His energy is tireless and he gets mountains of responses from local organisations and politicians and excellent coverage in the local media.
His most notable achievements include getting a cycle map published in the community pages of the telephone directory, the introduction of a cycle trailer shopping scheme at a local supermarket, an extension of a cycle track, and getting more Sheffield stands installed at the local hospital, three leisure centres and at locations on the St Helier waterfront.
The national award recognises that Steve’s is a particularly difficult situation as he is the only CTC representative on the island and the extraordinary self motivation he displays working almost entirely alone.
