TTL want to encourage more walking and cycling in the town. We are currently working in partnership with the District Council to utilise a sustainable transport budget to increase cycle and scooter parking at community venues across the town. We have also conducted a Cycle Survey (Survey Results) to find out where improvements could be made to make cycling a more attractive option and have formed a forum with local cyclists and cycling groups to produce a plan for a continuous network of safe cycling routes throughout the town (LetchworthCyclePlanEdition1). If you would like to get involved in this project then contact us.
TTL promote evening courses in bicycle maintenance . The next course,which takes place at St.Paul’s Church Hall, Pixmore way, Letchworth, runs for five weekly sessions (7:30pm-9:00pm), starting on Monday 16th October, and costs around £20.
The cycle maintenance course covers fault finding, adjustments, basic maintenance, repairs, and get you home needs. Participants need to bring their bicycles with them as there is lots of practical work involved. The course is tutored by Frank, who is keen to get as many cyclists on the road as possible. In his spare time he also helps Sustrans, which is the charity which is creating the British national network of cycleways, including Letchworth’s very own Route no.12. Please contact us and we’ll put you in touch with the course co-ordinator.
TTL members also have a keen interest in the development of electric vehicles and a number of us now drive electric cars. There is lots of knowledge to be shared by the group if you are thinking of changing to an electric vehicle.
