I cast my 1 vote for the Sustrans Connect 2 bid because it was going to improve cycling across the country.
Picking up the Times today there is another anti cycling piece in it.
I received the email from Sustrans via the CTC and it has around 50,000 members. Paul from the Northend was encouraging everyone with a phone to vote last Sunday so it wasn’t just Sustrans email getting everyone to vote but fellow cyclists networking. The quote from David Bellamy and others rings of sour grapes.
There is a distinct anti cyclist ring in some of the Times reporting. I’d don’t know if it’s because they have staff writers like Jeremy Clarkson, Paul Kimmage and David Walsh writing for the paper but you never see anything with a positive outlook in the paper.
Rant over, I’m off to Jacks funeral and boy is it cold out today.
On the positive side we’ve a new bridge over the River Dee to look forward to.
For those that used the gap to cross the A5117 the good news is that we are back in business as the contractors have reopened the gap.
They may have reopened the gap but Lodge lane is still fenced off with a climb over a wire fence needed to get through. This was today Saturday.
