I took Camcycle’s stall bike and despite damp grey days either side we had a mild and occasionally sunny day to enjoy the festival, which is a great mix of foodie stalls, community outreach and craft activities. A big draw this year was a miniature steam train running beside the food van area.
We were able to engage people about local developments such as the Abbey-Chesterton bridge and the Milton Road Alliance proposals. The new look city-centre cycling map was well received and our badges and gift cards were popular too. Events like these are a great opportunity to raise awareness of the Campaign. However, their success really does rely on enthusiastic volunteers helping out on the day. They aren’t a huge time commitment, you get to meet and chat with like-minded individuals, and you’ll always be supported by a member of the committee to help with the rare anti-cycling whinger!
