Vote for Sustrans' Connect2

Calling all cyclists – don’t forget to vote for Sustrans’ Connect2 in the People’s £50 Million Lottery Giveaway.

Connect2 is a UK-wide project that aims to improve local travel in 79 communities by creating new walking and cycling routes for those everyday journeys. In terms of south west Wales, this would mean valuable funding for improving the cycle link at Afon Tawe bridge, Clydach and Gowerton, Penclawdd and Crofty. There are many similar projects throughout Wales.

So PLEASE vote now and help improve the already amazing cycle paths and routes in Wales.

I had a pleasant surprise today to see that this very blog had been given a mention on the British Heart Foundation blog – as a result of my ramblings about the Swansea Santa jog.

You can read the article for yourself here, but better still why not take part in one of the many BHF events and raise some money for a worthy cause.

I’m glad to report that DDWT Junior returned to school today and although he’s not back to his normal 100% self – he asked to go himself! It does seem however that lots of his classmates are suffering with similar illnesses as the class number has dwindled to less than 10 this week.

We took the opportunity this morning to see how tall the little fella is now as well – partly because he also seems to be displayed the classic symptoms of growing pains. Anyway he now stands at 107.5 cm or 3ft 6′ – which seems to me to be quite tall for someone who is 46 months old. But what do I know.

  1. Please don’t think the Sustrans bid is the only one that’s flying the flag for cyclists. The Sherwood: Living Legend bid includes the creation of a 250km of paths through some of the country’s most beautiful, historic countryside. 90 per cent traffic free and stile free, it will link in with the national cycle network and public transport links – making it within two hours’ travelling distance of 45 per cent of the population. This is somewhere you can cycle and encourage people of any age or ability to enjoy outdoor activities with you – in safety. AND you get the added bonus of free, iconic visitor facilities, entertainment and Robin Hood! A vote for Sherwood is a vote for the people’s project!

  2. Good to hear that other cycling projects are bidding for the money.

    Being purely selfish though, I hope the Sustrans bid does win – as it’ll mean our local cycle routes get a makeover 🙂

    Anyway, may the best project win!
