Sat 6th April 2013, meeting at 9.30am for our monthly gentle pedal along the lanes to the farmers’ market at Rode Hall. Return at lunch time, with a possible pause at a pub. Meet on the corner of Moss Rd and Canal Rd/Leek Rd, Congleton. All welcome, members and non-members.
Remember, it’s only £5 for a household to join the Congleton Cycling Campaign, and members receive 10% discount at the Cycle Centre in West Rd too.
Apparently the funding came from the Forestry Commission as part of the aim of getting people to/into woodland. Thanks FC.
There has been a complaint in the local paper that the council should be filling in potholes not spending money on routes such as this, but as the funding came from elsewhere, it has not taken money away from road maintenance at all.
If any of you have walked/cycled along the Biddulph Valley Way (part of National Cycle Route 55) recently, you’ll have noticed the widened and resurfaced path up to the Cheshire/Staffs border. We noticed improvements to some sections last week but the work was still to be completed. The completed sections have eliminated the very muddy patches and places where puddles used to form, but in some places we noticed tyre marks and hoofprints, so hope the surface will remain serviceable with the high amount of traffic it receives.
