Disused Railways

 Sorry, my hyperlink does not work.  If you put in your search 'change.org/p/highways' I think you will be able to get to the petition. Nigel

Disused Railways

 I have received an email from a representative of Cycle Carlisle saying Highways England is intending to destroy disused railways routes so as to prevent pedestrian and cycle use. It is said '.... As we all know disused railways are ideal for cycleways rather than sitting idle whilst we struggle on parallel busy and / or steep roads. This is to ask Highways England to protect these vital routes.'. Below is a link to the Petition site:

Petition · Highways England: Protect our railway heritage from Highways England's wrecking ball · Change.org 

I have added my name. Do you want to add your's?

Regards and compliments of the season, Nigel (as Campaigns Officer)

Nowt to Do With Cycling

All the best to you all for some some sort of return to social activities in 2021, whether cycling, walking, kayaking etc - or just coffee stop meets!

In the meantime and a trifle belatedly, enjoy this superb Yuletide harmony about our lovely Lakeland. No, 'tis not Ruth and I doing the singing  (!!) - it's a folk group called Artisan.
