About Us

The Ledbury Area Cycle Forum (LACF), a regional subsidiary of the Herefordshire Cycle Forum, was set up in mid 1999. Its remit as an organisation is to improve the cycling environment in the Ledbury area and to promote cycling as an alternative, healthy and fun means of everyday transport for all ages. Hopefully over time this will encourage more of us to leave the car at home more often.

Membership of the forum is open to all Ledbury area cyclists and, at present, there are some twenty members of the forum. Through its members, the LACF has contacts with the Ledbury Town Council, local parish councils, local health bodies, the local primary and secondary schools and many local voluntary groups. The LACF also has links with the CTC, IMBA, Sustrans and local cycle clubs.

Consequently, the Forum believes it can speak with some authority, and with wide support from local cyclists, on transport issues affecting cyclists in the Ledbury area.

How is the LACF funded?

The Forum is a volunteer group. It aims to influence policymakers to improve the local cycling environment, but does not have the remit or the funding to commission such improvements itself.

Getting in touch

Should you wish to bring an issue to our attention, we would be very pleased to hear from you. In the first instance, please contact us by email. Your message will then be forwarded to the relevant members of the Forum.

Getting involved

Do you have the patience to attend committee meetings; pore over local development plans; write letters to councillors and companies, or proof-read documents? It's all in a good cause: trying to prevent bicycles being left in the shed!

At present the Forum's meetings are held in the Ledbury CVSLD offices in Bye Street, typically several times per year.

Between meetings, we keep in touch by post, by phone or more often by email: there is a mailing list for this purpose.

New members are always welcome. Drop us an email and we'll tell you when and where the next meeting will be held.
