Back to school with the Bike Train

Duncan from the excellent  Bike Train & Lewes Road for Clean Air has been in touch:

“We have a very busy autumn/winter & 2012 ahead with many rides to schools, universities and events, also developing a cycling vision for the Lewes Road, public information on air pollution and feeding into work around the Local Sustainable Transport Fund. Maintaining links with the LAT on this would be excellent.

I’d be grateful if you could include the following information & photos about Bike Train & Lewes Road for Clean Air.Also could you include a link to both our websites:

Certainly – happy to be of service.
