Cycle Sunday – call to action

The next Cycle Sunday event on the Downs is now taking place on Sunday 12 July.  The organisers need volunteer stewards and are looking for people to do a range of things from roaming the route by bike, counting arrivals (think deckchair and flask of coffee) and helping out at the HQ (small gazebo and a flag!) The last event was so positive, with an amazing community atmosphere, so they’re hoping that people involved in cycle campaigning in Bristol would find it a real tonic to help out at the event. Get in touch through the Facebook group or website.

Most importantly, although it seems to the participants to be just a ride in the park, it is actually a very strong demonstration to the Downs Committee – and one that they can’t ignore… The event timing is 9am – 12pm (although the actual road closure will be 8am – 1pm).

Note that you can now register your interest for the next Cycle Sunday on 12th July.
