A great event until the storm appeared at 3.30 and sent everyone home (and nearly sent the gazebo across the field).
In conjunction with Derby Cycling Group members of the Derwent Valley Cycleway group were at the Belper Goes Green festival on Saturday and Sunday 30/31st May. There was a steady stream of visitors to the stand and a high level of interest in the Derwent Valley Cycleway project.
Approximately 60 people signed up to be added to the email newsletter list. Almost without exception, visitors to the stand were positive about the project.
The picture shows the first outing for the new pop up stand showing a rough map of the route (thanks to Julie Carter and Ian Dent for their efforts in producing the banner and handouts). Derek Gascoyne and Sukie Kharia are shown modelling the stand.
Roger Jackson gave a short talk about the Cycleway on Saturday.
Thanks are also due to all the people who volunteered to assist on the stand including:
- Ian Dent
- Derek Gascoyne
- Alan Foord
- Sukie Kharia
- Tanya Spilsbury
A useful exercise in publicising the plans for the Cycleway.
Thanks to Ashley Franklin for taking the photograph.
Various different bodies have created design documents to help in the creation of effective cycling infrastructure. These include:
