Apologies for the somewhat ill-judged tone of yesterday's tweet on the #ClimateStrike & the trams. On reflection we agree that it's not for us to criticise their tactics and endorse this message from our Prestwich & Whitefield group. Thanks for all your comments on the matter.
In Berlin this weekend looking at walking and cycling infrastructure - pavements wide, lots of bike share scheme options (mostly scattered about on the floor), lots of riding, some on road conflict, where cycle paths are built they are well used, great public transport
Do you live or work in Hazel Grove? Would you like to help make it safer and nicer to walk and cycle? Anyone who has had the misfortune of travelling along the a6 knows there is an urgent need to get people out of their cars. Join Pete: he’s really nice!
Good turnout at the Manchester #climatestrike this afternoon. Great to see so many (young) people passionate about climate breakdown. What do we think about the decision to block trams as opposed to the nearby roads though? Trams are a low-carbon choice, cars aren't.
