This is a group who are campaigning for a safe pedestrian and cycle route to be built by 2014 between Saffron Walden and Audley End station along the shortest route – Wenden Road.

They organised a ride in October and we received this report:

‘Today was an amazing success. We clicked through just below 1,000 walkers and cyclists who trod and rode the route from Saffron Walden. Apart from making the point that a walk/cycle link to the station is very much both wanted and needed, it was a fun day out. A total of 503 people signed pledge cards to say how often they would use the route if it were built.’

That many people is a great turn out and we wish them every success with their campaign. Follow their progress at
