Barry Dobson

Role

Treasurer and Strategy Lead

Responsibilities

I look after CycleSheffield finances, and lead our presence in the Cycle Strategy Group with Sheffield Council.

About

I  am a leisure cyclist (holidays and day trips) with a lovely old Stan Pike Reynolds 531c road bike that I used the Eroica (in Italy) last year. I also enjoy using a bike to get around town – I (almost) always arrive feeling better than when I left! My aim is to get Sheffield Council to build a decent cycling network so we can encourage everyone to use bikes, regardless of age and ability. I was inspired by a trip to Seville where cycling has increased 10 fold since they set up a network of protected cycle paths throughout the city. My other interests include being a volunteer gardener at Chatsworth, and building electric guitars.
