Help Needed for February Cycle Count

We are looking for volunteers to help with our next cycle count. This is a really important activity for Spokes, since the payment that we get from the Council is main source of our funding and is one of the reasons that membership is free.

There are 17 sites which need to be counted from 07:30 to 09:30 on 25th, 26th and 27th February:

Site 1: Newbury – Kennet & Avon Towpath (Beneath A339)
Site 2: Newbury – A339 (on Railway Bridge)
Site 3: Newbury – Robin Hood west arm (London Road)
Site 4: Newbury – Kiln Road / Walton Way
Site 5: Newbury – Love Lane (roundabout at Trinity School)
Site 6: Newbury – Andover Road (just north of St Bartholomew’s School)
Site 7: Newbury – Junction of Northcroft Lane & path to Monkey Bridge
Site 8: Newbury – Junction of Valley Road and Fifth Road
Site 9: Newbury – Junction of Battery End with Wash Common Recreation Ground
Site 10: Thatcham – A4 West of Lower Way
Site 11: Thatcham – Thatcham Station
Site 12: Thatcham – Corner of Bath Road & Green Lane
Site 13: Theale – Junction of High Street & Waterside Drive
Site 14: Hungerford – Staggered junction near Town Hall – Church St & Park St
Site 15: Calcot – Junction of Langley Hill & Bath Road
Site 16: Tilehurst – Junction of Dark Lane & Overdown Road
Site 17: Purley – Junction of Knowsley Road & Oxford Road

If you can help with any of these, then please email us ( You can do more than one count on subsequent days if you would like. Locations will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

We really appreciate the help that we get from our volunteers, who turn out in all weathers. To say thank you, everyone who counts for at least one hour will be entered in a prize draw for £50 of Banjo vouchers.


February Cycle Count

Spokes will be carrying out the first of its three cycle counts of the year between the 26th and 28th of February.  We are looking for volunteers to record the numbers of cyclists between 07:30 – 09:30 on any one of these days. There are 17 sites covered by the count, from Hungerford in the west to Tilehurst in the east.

As an incentive for turning out in the month of February and for Spokes to show its appreciation, all those who volunteer to take part in the count will be entered for a prize draw – the winner will receive £50 of Banjo vouchers. The draw will be made during Spokes monthly meeting in April.

Cycle counting is important for Spokes, since the funding that we receive from West Berkshire Council helps to fund our activities and is the main reason that we are able to offer membership for free.

So if you are able to help, please contact William on 01635 529 909, 07890 575 498 or use the contact form.
