I realise that not all cyclists are in agreement with what Sustrans are trying to do, viz: To lace the country with traffic-free routes for cyclists and walkers alike. However, I bet not one of us, given the choice, would chose to cycle in traffic, when there is a clear, well-surfaced, traffic-free path that doesnít take us miles out of our way. With this in mind, I would urge everyone to support the Connect-2 project.
What is Connect-2?
To Quote Sustransís literature: Connect2 is a UK-wide project that will transform local travel in 79 cities, towns and villages by creating new walking and cycling networks for everyday journeys. For more information, go to: http://www.sustransconnect2.org.uk
In short, in December, a series of TV shows will allow the public to take part in a telephone vote, to decide who gets a £50 Million grant of Lottery money. Connect2 is one of the finalists, and the only one which will affect many parts of the country.. On Tuesday 4th December, Lorraine Kelly will be championing Connect2 on an ITV1 show . On-line voting begins on Monday 26th November, telephone voting will begin on Friday 7 December.
Please vote for connect2 and improve the lot of cyclists and walkers in many of our cities, towns and villages across the UK.
