Damned diversions! (via ChaseWaterCycle Blog)


It's not easy being… fluorescent yellow. Intrepid explorer Kate leads the way... From CHasewatercycle's blog.

I’d like to share the following, excellent Blue Peter style guide to the cycle/pedestrian diversions afoot over at Chasewater. Compiled by Lesley and Kate, delightful mum and daughter team from Chasewatercycle, it’s an honest, funny and captivating journey by bike around a not terribly well thought-out new route system, implemented while the long awaited dam repairs are underway. There’s even a handy, download and print out map for your excursions. I’ve a feeling there’ll be lots more comment to come about the situation in the park from the Chasewatercycle Blog, so stay tuned.

Lesley has just been appointed local Sustrans ranger, which must be the first visible person we’ve had in the role for a long, long time. I wish her well in the position, locally we are in desperate need of committed cycling advocates.
