G-BUG meeting 11 June

Help Guildford Borough Council and Surrey County Council improve cycling infrastructure and make cycling safer – 6pm 11th June, Guildford Council Chamber.

Your chance to learn about planned cycling infrastructure (or the lack of) in the Guildford (Borough) Transport Strategy and ask the leading councillor questions.

Number count, so your presence is important.

Assume 60 to 90 minutes for the meeting.

There is secure cycle parking outside the chamber, if the fixed loops are full, chain up to the railings.  The Suffragettes did, and they got the vote.  Make yours count.

Nine cyclists and three non-cyclists enjoyed a Tuesday-Friday ‘weekend’ (we’re nearly all retired these days) at The Bell House Hotel in Sutton Benger, near Chippenham in Wiltshire.  Here are a few of my photographs.  There are more (and larger) photos at https://www.flickr.com/photos/chris_jeggo/albums/72157695067222391.
