A bright sunny day, the middle of Parker’s Piece, a parade of models promoting designer cyclewear and their attractive city bikes. It was a good day.
On the Saturday I was stunned by a display of designer secure-cycle parking set against an outline of a car – I’d love to see this tried in Cambridge. A police officer came to the Campaign’s stall and thanked us for our Cycle Map – which helps him control city centre cycling.
The fashion parade was even better on the Sunday when they’d sorted out the music and changed the layout. It felt like a new type of event, and drew a new, younger audience into the world of promoting cycling.
