Running Cycle Campaign Groups

Running Cycle Campaign Groups

You have successfully established a group ... now what? This article contains advice on how to keep the energy high and the members coming back meeting after meeting.

Once you have had your first meeting, and hopefully had some interested people turn up, you need to concentrate on maintaining numbers and enthusiasm.

From your meeting you should have an idea of what sort of cyclists have expressed an interest - are they commuters, Sunday racers, mountain bikers or interested in road safety?

The dynamic that your group has attracted will influence what sort of activities you should be organising. You may find that weekly rides will bring more people into your group, or you may find it a distraction from your core campaigning objectives - or maybe you have the resources and capacity to do both.
