TACC has increased its activities last years. We are pushing for much better conditions to enable more people to cycle. Most of our day-to-day costs have been funded from our own pockets but we really need to establish a 'fighting fund'.
We are hoping that people will support us via our fund raising platform Local Giving. Even if you can only give a couple of quid, it will really help. Thank you!

Taunton Area Cycling Campaign is a voluntary group run by local residents with 500 members. Our aim is safer, better and more cycling in the Taunton Area. We are campaigning on a number of key areas:
integration into major new developments such as the North Taunton Development, Coal Orchard and Firepool;
improving design standards so that road and cycling infrastructure is designed in a way that it more user friendly;
seeking more investment, in the short term through Somerset County Council’s Small Improvement Scheme programme. We are seeking to work with the local authorities for a major scheme funding bid, in line with Taunton Garden Town aspirations;
promotion and updating the Taunton cycling and walking map.
We believe that, if you cycle in Taunton, you help create a BETTER environment, save time by making QUICKER journeys and you will be FITTER.
