Stripping away our Safety
Derby City Council are planning on degrading and removing cycling infrastructure on Friargate between Brick St and Bridge St.
The plans will see the removal of a bus/ cycle lane to create space for two lanes of cars.
The plans will increase the number of cars, increase pollution and increase the danger to road cyclists.
We want you to join us at this protest. Bring a bike, a placard, an instrument or just yourself.
We are going to organise bike rides around the infrastructure and have invited local councillors to join us.
We want to inform the public of these dangerous changes that will strip away our safety. Protest starts at 11am and at 11:30 members of the group’s committee and anyone else who wants to join us will strip down to their underwear in protest. Protest likely to end around 12 noon.
Surprisingly the media will also be invited. Meet before 11am on Saturday 16th Feb at junction of Friar Gate and Vernon Street.
The council’s plans are unacceptable and dangerous.
