Description: From Thea Bjaaland
Dear Sustrans friends and volunteers,
I would like to celebrate the end of a great year for walking and cycling with you on Saturday 17th December, 12-2pm, at Ropewalk Community Garden, 53 Derby Road, Southampton, SO17 1EG.
Ropewalk is one of Southampton’s secret open spaces where, in addition to growing food, we have organised a number of cycling events such as cycle training for children and bike maintenance workshops. We are also looking into setting up a bike loan scheme and a led walk in the area.
The Sustrans/Transition Southampton initiative Bike2Basics will be at Ropewalk on the 17th to provide training and tools for people to learn to fix their own bike. There’ll be food and refreshments, and an opportunity to meet new people and find out about other initiatives happening in the inner city of Southampton.
Please let me know if you can make it – I hope to see some of you there!!
For those of you who can’t make it: thank you for your support throughout this past year and I look forward to continue to promote cycling and walking with you in 2012!
