Last Night’s Cycle Forum

Long post, sorry. Report back on last night’s Cycle Forum, which was a Q&A with members of the Transport Committee. Sustrans Volunteer John Kirwood led off with a question specifically about the access barriers on NCN6, which at this point is the bridleway leading around the side of the cafe and lake area. It is located… Continue reading Last Night’s Cycle Forum

Sheffield to Dublin
