RCC is excited about the 2012 Olympic Road Race coming to Richmond. With at least two chances to see it, on the way out and the way back, we think people will enjoy cycling around the Borough during the day. We’ve suggested working with the Council and TfL to resolve obstacles to spectators cycling to the race, identifying and agreeing routes:
- Into the Borough from the north, south, east and west;
- From, and to, train stations;
- To, and then along, the race route.
One of the routes we’re thinking about is along the River Crane which already brings cyclists to Twickenham railway station but read what the Friends of the River Crane Environment [FORCE] say in their Feasibility Study about the potential of the Crane Valley cycle route and as an alternative to the A316 Chertsey Road cycle path. [Note many of the suggestions have been done since the report was published in 2009]
E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if this is a route you use and have something to say about it.
Remember, Rides for Everyone Saturday 19th March includes the River Crane.
