> I'm giving a talk for Cyclox members telling them about OpenStreetMap on
> the coming Thursday, handing out pencil-and-paper mapping packs with
> SAEs. Given that we already have all of the streets, pretty much, we can
> hopefully get the Cyclox people to tell us about all the cheats,
> shortcuts and useful infrastructure that they know and we don't (yet).

>  West Oxford Community Centre. Quite near the station.
> It'll also be a social gathering, in the same slot as and replacing a
> regular Cyclox meetup, with pizza and pub afterwards. Free nibbles up
> front if you get there early.

>  Refreshments provided beforehand, 30 to 45 mins presentation and Q&A,
>  stay for pizza and an informal chat afterwards.
> Cyclox, the University of Oxford, and OpenStreetMap will be working
> together over the next few months to create a detailed map of the city
> that meets the needs of cyclists using a grass-roots approach. The map
> will be made by cyclists, for cyclists, and as part of the process we
> need to gather information from as wide a spectrum of Oxford cyclists as
> possible. We need a good number of volunteers interested in performing
> an active on-street survey to help us do this, so if you're interested,
> please come along to the meeting!
> * Cyclox is the cycling campaign group for Oxford.
> * OpenStreetMap creates and provides free geographic data such as street
> maps to anyone who wants them.
