A big thank you to Tony Waterson from the Safe Cycling Jesmond and Transition Town groups who organised both events
Finally if you’d like to help with the kick off event, the street parade on Saturday 11 May from midday, the organisors are looking for stewards (with mobile phone, please). Last year, we had quite a few volunteers on bike which was greatly appreciated and added a nice touch to the parade. Just contact Chris Murtagh firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help.
