Nov/Dec Bulletin

Dear Bugsters,

 

Winter is coming but we're still riding. This is the driest part of the country so we often have surprisingly good weather for our rides, but please check the website, facebook or your email for possible late-notice changes.

 

Evening event: Fri 2 Nov Fawkes in the Walks in King's Lynn. Avoid the car jams! It's about 15 minutes or less cycling from most of town and there are 60 lit and covered good cycle parking spaces nearby in the St James Multi-storey (enter through the disabled car park arch on the north side near the electric car chargers), with another 20 inside the bus station car park and some more inside the rail station. It's best to avoid trying to cycle through the Walks during or just after the event and use the North Lynn route or Hospital Walk and Extons Road instead, but still take care crossing or riding along Tennyson Road.

 

 

Our national conference, the CycleNation conference, is on Saturday 24 November in Birmingham. This year's headline theme is "low traffic neighbourhoods". If you are interested in going, please email bug@klwnbug.co.uk and we'll send you details.

 

 

Other campaigns are rolling forwards, including: Rob is trying to get obstacles removed from various cycleways - those evil slaloms and narrow gates block many child trailers, tricycles and handcycles, as well as causing many avoidable crashes; MJ has been publishing a series of articles on the website about rail trails and the possible Lynn-Fakenham one, as well as being interviewed by the EDP about West Norfolk losing its crown as Norfolk's most-cycling district; while we're also supporting the Harding's Way campaign and pushing for restoration and creation of various cycling infrastructure.

 

If you'd like to help with any of these campaigns, please email bug@klwnbug.co.uk and let us know!

 

Keep rolling!
