Working Group Meetings

Working Groups meet regularly to coordinate or organise certain areas of Extinction Rebellion Warwick District.

The Actions Working Group meet once a fortnight at Temperance in Bath Street, Leamington Spa, to discuss and plan future actions for the Warwick District rebels.

Critical Mass Cycle Ride

A family-friendly, accessbile, leisurely ride around Leamington town, the cyclists will meet from 11.00 am and leave the Pump Room Gardens around 11.30 am with the aim of taking a circular route finishing back at the Bandstand where there will be refreshments and a debrief.

It is unclear how many cyclists are expected for the ride and how much traffic will be disrupted as a result of the event.

Our aim is to highlight the need for more cycle friendly routes, to bring attention to the severe air quality issues in parts of Leamington, and to promote this clean form of transport.

Route

8.33 km

Children, and those who wish to take it a little easier, can join the ride as it comes back to Regent Street if wanting to do a shorter distance.

You don't have to come with a bike, there will be activity at the Band Stand for the duration, and we will be supporting the ride as it comes back down The Parade.

More details

 

  • Cycling has a crucial role to play in easing congestion and Leamington’s air quality issues (among the most polluted areas in the UK)

  • Myriad of benefits of increased cycle trips to public health (https://www.sustrans.org.uk/our-blog/research/all-themes/all/active-nation-the-health-benefits-of-cycling-and-walking-in-scotland/)

  • Many in Warwick and Leamington are discouraged from commuting by bike due to lack of safe routes

  • School commutes - “Children who walk and cycle regularly concentrate better in class and achieve higher grades” (Sustrans)

  • “Evidence suggests walking and cycling can contribute positively towards mental health both through physical activity and other factors in comparison to commuting by car.” (Sustrans)

  • Economic benefits - improving walking and cycling links and accessibility boosts local business (Sustrans)
