Sunday 20th December Distance: about whatever we can do in a reasonable time! Lynnsport 10am
will be cycling the North Norfolk coast from 10-3pm on Sunday 20th December so
get outdoors, take a snap and help us raise some money!
To spread a little joy this Christmas Open Sky
Cycles have enlisted Santa to help us. Along with the other 83% of people in
the UK who have picked up a bicycle this year, Santa will be getting on his
bike next Sunday to cycle around the local area.
For every person who snaps and posts a photo of
Santa on his bike and shares it to our Facebook page, Open Sky Cycles will
donate £2 to the Hunstanton & District Food Bank.
Please share this far and wide so that we can
make a fun day for all involved and raise some much needed cash to help local
people in crisis
There will also be covid safe 'lucky dip'
in-store for those who check in to our shop on Facebook during their
#foodbank #santaspotting #norfolkxmas Open Sky Cycles @OpenSkyCycles · Bicycle Shop
The weather is turning (has turned!) chilly. We are out of the November restrictions and back to socially distanced groups of not more than six. Wrap up well! We are suggesting Sunday meetings at 10.00am Lynnsport with destinations to be confirmed on the day. Keep an eye on the website or Facebook for updates/changes. If it’s too cold or wet we may abandon or truncate rides because we cannot go inside as a group at any café stop to warm up. So bearing this in mind we are proposing a ride on Sunday 20th December to the north Norfolk coast. Bring food and hot drink if you can, and decent lights. It may be deemed advisable to decide when we meet to alter the destination. Hope to see you at Lynnsport.
Official gov.uk advice now says "Across all tiers, everyone should walk or cycle where possible" so please rest assured that you are being responsible and helpful during this crisis by cycling and keeping fit.
The UK government is also backing this advice up with some more cycling budget for England, although it is fair to note that it is dwarfed by the billions being thrown at more "expressways" to rush motorists between congested cities. Norfolk has been allocated another £1.75m from the active travel fund in the last few months and we have asked what it will be spent on: so far, we only know vague things about capacity improvements to the Strikes/KES crossing.
Thanks to MJ for the providing this information.
