Bromsgrove cyclist supports new Sustrans routes
11:10am Wednesday 28th August 2013 in News
A BROMSGROVE cyclist and volunteer is celebrating the completion of a new UK walking and cycling route network.
Janet Steel is a volunteer for the Sustrans charity that enables people to travel by foot, bike or public transport on everyday journeys.
The charity is celebrating the completion of 80 new cycling and walking routes along the National Cycle Network, with a national Pedal on UK tour.
The 62-year-old helps monitor and maintain the local Route five route, heading from Bromsgrove to Catshill, Redditch and Droitwich.
Today, (August 28), she will be cycling in the St Neots to Birmingham stretch of the bike ride, which has been organised to mark the expansion of the network.
“Sustrans routes were my introduction to recreational cycling which keeps me fit and well in retirement,” she said.
“I began doing longer trips, and now support the Breeze bike rides for women project.”
