  • Our Place Our Plan - Tettenhall

    Logo-OurPlaceOurPlan-newtype

    Our overall impressions of the aspirations contained in the Plan are favourable.

    If developments and schemes came forward that fulfilled these then it would go a long way to producing a joined up network of cycle friendly routes that we feel would encourage people to choose cycling.

  • About WoW

    Wolves On Wheels Cycle Campaign works in a number of areas :-

    The Campaign's main aim is the creation a cycling culture in the Wolverhampton area.

    We lobby local, regional and national government, and collaborate with them as well as other agencies and organisations in order to promote the following issues

    • The rights of cyclists and cycle users.
    • The promotion of cycling as a mode of transport available to all.
    • Road safety including the education of all road users.
    • The integration of cycling with other modes of public transport. Bike 2 Rail has been a major area with some notable campaign successes with Virgin Trains at the Station.
    • WoW works with the local highway authority to ensure high quality cycle-friendly infrastructure and cycle parking facilities are implemented.
    • Cycle Training for all.  New and returning cyclists will always have a portion of their journey on the highway.

    Wolves on Wheels recognise that :

    • All people (including children) have the right to use cycles for independent travel to and from their intended destination.
    • We are not anti-car but are instead pro transport choice.
    • Cycling offers a quick and easy door-to-door transport.
    • Cycles are cheap and easy to run.
    • Cycling improves physical and mental health -- cycling is fun!
    • Cycling is quiet, non-polluting, takes up little space and does not place demands on limited fossil reserves.
    • Cycling is available to everyone, be they rich or poor, male or female, young or old.

  • Wolves on Wheels Sustrans Ranger Group

    Wolves on Wheels Cycle Campaign has a Sustrans Community Ranger Group.

    The Wolves on Wheels Ranger group is responsible for keeping an eye on National Cycle Network Route 81 (or NCN81 for short) from Smethwick to Wolverhampton to Telford.

    The route follows canal towpaths along the Birmingham Main Canal to Wolverhampton Broad Street Basin down the 21 Locks to Aldersley Junction, along the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal to Autherley Junction, up the east bank of the Shropshire Union canal to Pendeford Mill Road.

    From here the route joins a signposted route through Bilbrook. 

    At present the Staffs County Council signing ends at Sandy Lane.

    The Route is supposed to direct a rider around Codsall so they reach Moathouse Lane.

    They turn left out of Moathose Lane and right into Hushpins Lane / Beamish Lane .

    At County Lane they reach the "Promised Land" - cycle-friendly Shropshire.

    NCN81 visits Albrighton, Cosford and The RAF Museum. 

    It continues to Shifnal and Telford. The route passes through Wroxeter Roman City and Shrewsbury on its way to Llanidloes, Aberystwyth and Cardigan (Aberteifi).

    There is also in Wolverhampton a "Braid" of Route 81 called the Cross-City Route.
    This means that NCN81 signs appear on e.g. Lichfield Street and around West Park.
    Find out where NCN81 Cross City Route between Wolverhampton Station and Aldersley Leisure Centre goes.

    The Cross-City Route goes to Aldersley Junction to rejoin the Main NCN81

    Sustrans is a charitable body funded by subscriptions, donations and lottery grants.
    Members of the public can become Supporters.
    Having only a small paid staff, Sustrans started a programme of volunteer Rangers in 1998 to look after the Network day-to-day. 
    Where a large number have volunteered in one area, they are encouraged to form a local group to work together.
    In Wolverhampton this Ranger Group is part of Wolves On Wheels Cycle Campaign and looks after the route between Birmingham and Telford.

  • Wolverhampton Bicycle Users' Group

    Wolf on Wheels

    Wolverhampton Bicycle Users' Group

    Wolf on Wheels 

     

    Wolverhampton Bicycle Users Group is friendly, fun and open to cyclists of all abilities, experience and ages (if you are under 18 you must bring a parent or guardian to ride with you).

    It is a networking group, linking cyclists with cyclists, promoting cycling for leisure and health. From the new or returning cyclist to the hardened pedaller with many miles under your tyres we hope to have a ride and companions for you. The emphasis is enjoyment and encouragement. 

    We welcome all, cycle campers able to devote a couple of days and a lot of energy, parents snatching an hour of 'me time' between school runs, families with tag-alongs and tandems, individuals looking for ride companions for conversation and confidence.

    Loosing weight, finding friends, saving the planet, tempted by the National Cycle Network signs round the city, with rides starting at under 5 miles but also extending onwards and upwards to individual limits there really is no excuse not to give us a try.

    As a real incentive why not sign up for our Ludlow Foodie Challenge (September)?

    Initial membership is limited to 2 months during which time you must take part in 2 group rides. If you have participated responsibly and respectfully of other riders you will be invited to become a full member. There is a small membership fee. Wolves BUG takes it's aim of being a safe, encouraging and friendly community very seriously. Children are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult and remain the responsibility of that adult at all times.

    Wolves BUG is a sister organisation of Wolves on Wheels and is being developed and launched during 2008. The first ride took place on 30 March 2008.
