Cyclefest 22

July 27, 2022

On Saturday July 9th Kent CRP were invited by Maidstone Cycle Campaign Forum to host a stand at Maidstone CycleFest 2022.  The day was warm and busy with valuable community engagement.  We promoted riding and walking to railway stations and encourage cyclists to take their bike on the train for their end to end journeys, it’s surprising how many people do not realise they can take their bikes on trains!  We provided cycling and walking maps for local towns including Maidstone, Ashford and Tonbridge.  The smoothie bike was a big hit being in almost constant use by passers-by intrigued to try it out!  24 active travel surveys were completed and 14 community members asked to be added to our database to hear of future events and activities.
