Cycle Hubs Project to clear path for bikers
Oct 21 2010 by The Journal
A CYCLING project is helping Northumberland firms become more attractive to bikers.
The Northumberland Cycle Hubs Project is running workshops in early November to help businesses become more 'cycle-friendly'. The workshops are for accommodation providers, cafés, pubs, tourism attractions, taxi companies, cycle hire and repair shops and other high street businesses.
A representative from VisitBritain will give a talk on the official 'Cyclists' Welcome' scheme and there will be top tips on simple measures to increase marketability and appeal to people travelling on two wheels.
This event will be an excellent opportunity for local businesses to get together and forge new links.
The talks are being held on Thursday November 4, 10.30 for 11am- 12.30pm at the Cheviot Hall, Cheviot Centre, Wooler.
The next is being held on Friday November 5, 10.30 for 11am-12.30pm at Haltwhistle Library, Westgate, Haltwhistle. Light refreshments will be available afterwards.
