On Saturday 18th May, more than 200 people honoured the rights of cyclists and pedestrians by swarming the normally car clogged streets of Norwich City centre. Cyclists are just as much part of a city's traffic as its car drivers. Pedal Power ! People Power ! and a whole lot less pollution. This event is only going to grow and grow.
Nick the wolf and his two wheels were at the centre of the action. Read his experience below.
Here is the press coverage and check out the pictures in our gallery.
We love this city and on Saturday we expressed that love in a joyful purposeful slow cycle around it's streets. A colourful bell ringing river of over 200 cyclists flowing freely through Norwich, circling roundabouts, easing our way gently through gridlock. Other traffic was briefly delayed. If one of our aims was to stop car traffic, I guess we did. In truth city centre traffic is virtually at a standstill where cars have reached their own critical mass. We were cheered and waved to by pedestrians and drivers and we waved and cheered our thanks in return. Back at the Forum we rested for a moment in the euphoria of what had happened and then melted away.
