Our Last Event 

Time to Cycle is a group that wants to accelerate action against Climate Change. They cycled from London to the largest open cast mine in Britain: Ffos-y-Fran near Merthyr Tydfil through Devizes where they spent the night in St Andrews' Church Hall and enjoyed a meal especially preprated by Vaughan's Kitchen.  Great meeting of minds!

CANAL TOWPATH PROJECT 

Towpath improvements

The former Cycle Devizes group with volunteers from Devizes Community Area Partnership identified areas for immediate action including the canal towpath.  
The community groups successfully lobbied the Canal and Rivers Trust and Wiltshire Council at high level, then worked with all parties to place the towpath as their top priority for safe and pleasant cycling and walking, pushing prams and wheel chairs by the Canal.

The first phase of the project (London Road to the Hospital Bridge) has been completed.

The second phase (The Wharf to The Nursery/Bath Road) is in construction phase.

The third phase needs further partnership.  Sustrans funding is vulnerable to central government cuts despite the rhetoric to get people cycling.
