Afoot is an association of like-minded people who are concerned at the steady rise in militant, anti-social cycling. Although many of us are cyclists and are very concerned that cycling should be made as safe and as easy as possible, we are equally concerned that increasing safety for cyclists should not be at the expense of additional danger to other road users, particularly pedestrians.
Afoot members are residents of Eastbourne who walk, cycle and drive. We believe that urban space needs to be safe for all, with investment made to deliver good quality schemes. We have no affiliation to one mode of transport therefore consider ourselves independent and can view urban design through the eyes evidence based best practice.
Afoot is concerned that militant cycling groups are forcing the agenda of local authorities and, by their aggressive promotion of their mantra are intimidating opponents into submission.
Afoot is about redressing the balance and giving pedestrians and drivers the opportunity to voice their opinions and concerns.
Cycling and walking continue to decline in Eastbourne, but our council hides its head in the sand and continues to promote the "Emperor’s New Clothes" that is Shared Space.
Subscribe to Afoot and help us campaign for our rights and safe passage regardless of our mode of movement or transport.
