“SAFE STREETS FOR CYCLISTS”
Sunday 28th April

We plan it to be a big, family event. We want all sorts of people on all kinds of bicycles. Even fancy dress if you like! The route’s not too long:

PARKER’S PIECE TO MARKET SQUARE
VIA CITY CENTRE & THE BACKS

Assemble at on

Parker’s Piece from 2:00pm, for a 2:30pm departure

. There’ll be detailed route maps available but you’ll not be able to get lost amongst the hundreds of people. At the end of the ride we’ll assemble for a few words from, amongst others, hopefully, a:

CELEBRITY

We want you to plan to come and tell all your friends to come too! We’ll be needing volunteers to take posters and publicise the event. On the day we’ll also need marshals. If you think you can help with anything, Lisa would love to hear from you soon on 245566. The event is being organised entirely by The Campaign but we’re also seeking endorsement from other local organisations.
