Portsmouth Cycle Forum hosts around 5 open meetings a year, several rides (usually on Sundays), and we also announce here other cycling-related events. The open meetings include invited presentations on interesting cycling developments around the country, and discussions on cycling issues and ideas for the city. We regularly have attendees from the City Council at these meetings.
