The BACC is a voluntary group run by cycling enthusiasts and local residents. Formed in February 2019, our main aim is to
improve & promote safer cycling and the provision of new route infrastructure ...
We are currently trying to get together a Communication Team and are working with two Bridgwater College students to get our basic social media platforms up to scratch. However, we will need a volunteer to help organise the administration of our Comms, but I am a bit unsure exactly how this might work. We will need someone who does or could learn to understand the MailChimp application and how it is best to communicate with all of our local parish/community newsletters, etc.
improve & promote safer cycling and the provision of new route infrastructure within Bridgwater and the surrounding areas. We
also will support (where applicable) safer walking, the interests of pedestrians and all means of sustainable transport.
The group has four main focus areas. These are, safety (concerning ourselves with vulnerable road users, reduction in speed
limits and assessing local areas for personal safety risk), behavioural change (raising awareness of the benefits of cycling and
increased physical activity), infrastructure (influencing changes to both existing and new paths and local route mapping), and
communications (raising awareness through ‘our’ website, social media, the local press and any group’s correspondence).
