Howdy Folks!

It's been a little while, so I thought I'd update you on a few things!

First of all is something very important called Connect2. Connect2 is a UK-wide project that will transform local travel in 79 cities, towns and villages by creating new walking and cycling routes for the journeys we all make every day. Crossings and bridges will be created over busy roads, railway lines and rivers, linking into new networks of local paths to get you to where you want to go.

If Connect2 wins, millions of you will be able to travel in a healthy and environmentally-friendly way to the shops, school, work, and the park or to see family and friends. Connect2 in Hereford will see the devlopment of some new paths and an alternative route to Rotherwas. It'll make travle by bike and foot, safer and make it easier for us to all travel about under out own steam. That way we can all do our bit for the environment!

A few weeks ago Luke and I took part ina promotional day around Hereford, which saw a banner travel (a bit like the Olympic flame) from one side of the town to the other. Our Cargo bikes and Pedicabs were involved.

The banner accompanied me to various morning stops before I handed it over to be taken up to Belmont PCT.

On its way back from Belmont with a walking group Luke and I were on hand with the pedicabs to run folk all over.

So a great day was had by all, and Connect2 needs your vote. Register here and then on the day theyll send you a reminder by email or text -
