Space for Cycling Ride – Thank you

20161001-dcg-space-for-cycling-ride-6 20161001-dcg-space-for-cycling-ride-8I would like to say a huge thank you to the 60 or so people who came out in Derby today to show their support for Derby Cycling Group’s campaign to make the city a better place by creating more space for cycling. Some of those people you can see here.

Thank you too to the hundreds of facebook shares and thousands of tweets which have spread the word of our quest far and wide.

Thank you to the ride organisers: Daryl, Andrea and Dave who I know about with Ian D managing the backroom work, and all our support riders on the day.

Finally, thank you too to the 20161001-dcg-space-for-cycling-ride-4people of Derby who were out in town today and waved to us as we passed by; I think the disruption was minimal but our apologies for anybody who was inconveienced by our procession through the town.

As Paul Hilditch has commented on the Facebook Event: it was great to see such a diverse range of people on the ride: young and old, women and men, people in everyday clothes and one or two MAMILS for good measure; we all cycle; we share the same issues and we share our love of cycling.

Please stay with us and encourage more to join in our campaign as we take Derby’s Space for Cycling to the next level.

Tony Roelich,  Campaigns Coordinator

 

One thought on “Space for Cycling Ride – Thank you”

  1. Hi,
    Many thanks to Derby cycling group for organising this event.
    I really enjoyed participating in a group of like-minded people.
    Hopefully a positive message was achieved on the day,and as a consequence we see more commitment from the people who have the power to implement the necessary infrastructure and means to an end! Ultimately, acheiving more “bums on bikes” !!
    Finally, my 13 year old son was asking when is the next short derby cycling group ride, like last years Elvaston castle run? (he was unable to attend this time).
    Keep the good work up.
    Regards
    Paul Brunt
