Friday evening, 3rd May
Meet Jane at Green Park Station at 5.30 or Beckford Road canal entrance at 5.45
Out on the canal, to the Wheelwrights Arms in Monkton Combe for some
good food and a beer. They serve meals and bar snacks and all dishes
are prepared and cooked on the premises from local ingredients where
possible. Ymmm.. sounds good.
Then back before it gets dark through the Two Tunnels, ( we can’t get
enough of those wonderful tunnels), which means you can freewheel from
there back into town.
But remember ‘Ne’er cast a clout til May be out’
The Times 'Cities Fit for Cycling' campaign needs your help.
Today, Wednesday April 24th, the Get Britain Cycling parliamentary inquiry submits its crucial report to the Government.
If Britain is to realise the potential benefits of promoting cycling as a healthy and affordable mode of transport, then it is vital that the Government and the Prime Minister take this report seriously and implement its recommendations in full.

Longest cycle tunnel in the UK opens with a fanfare.
After years of campaigning and hard work, the Two Tunnels group in partnership with Sustrans and Bath & North East Somerset council succeeded in opening the majority of the route from Bath to Midford on 6 April 2013.
Our key aim is "to get more people cycling in Bath".
We are turning CycleBath into an umbrella membership organisation, website and social network that defines itself as "All things cycling in Bath" and "Talking about cycling in Bath". Googling "Cycling" and "Bath" brings the CycleBath website as one of the top sites, so we want to build on this to make CycleBath the natural focus for residents in and visitors to Bath find out information, meet other cyclists and get cycling.
A new West-East route across the city centre

20's Plenty for Us is contributing to collecting 1 million signatures for the European Citizen's Initiative (ECI) for 20mph/30kph. It's a people-powered call for 20mph to be the default European speed limit for built up areas. The success of 20's Plenty in the UK is part of the reason this was established.
Changing the built up default to 20mph without signage would be cheaper and quicker than changing the road signs locality by locality (our campaign focus thus far).
Registration is now open for Bike Bath 2013 with discounted entry fees until 31st January. The 2013 event will build on the successful elements of this year’s event with revised routes and a new 20 mile route on the Saturday. Please follow us on Facebook, Twitter and the website, www.bikebath.co.uk to keep informed of exact routes and events over the weekend and to register for next year’s event.
