Lewes Road Cycle Path Opening
5th October 2013
What a fantastic day! The launch of the new cycle path on the Lewes Road started with a BikeTrain, organised by Duncan Blinkhorn and his crew, from the Levels in Brighton as far as Wild Park. Lucy was transported by Peter Mynors, the cycling expert who masterminded the plan we put to the Council last year. He really made it all happen. Peter has a specially adapted tandem that made for a very comfortable ride to Wild Park. Also on the bike train was Caroline Lucas, MP sharing a tandem with Duncan. With the music blaring, flags waving and a unicycle joining us, it was a very emotional event to be part of. We are hugely grateful to Duncan and the Biketrain team for putting it on.
