Event hopes to encourage local people to take cars off the road and get into cycling
27th April 2017: This weekend budding and experienced cyclists alike are invited to Cleator Moor to Sustrans’ Track of the Ironmaster launch event.
The event, organised by the charity responsible for taking care of our cycle ways and promoting sustainable transport invites local people to the Phoenix Bridge picnic area in Cleator Moor for guided rides, bike maintenance workshops, storytelling. dressing up competitions and wildlife bingo.
Britain’s Energy Coast is providing sponsorship to the event. CEO, Michael Pemberton said: “The protection and promotion of our cycle ways is critical in the move to sustainable transport. We hope this event will encourage more people in our community to ditch their cars get on their bikes. The event is very timely for us, as we’ve just completed bike storage, shower facilities and locker installations at our new HQ in Cleator Moor to allow our own team to cycle in or be active during the workday. This is in addition to existing facilities at Westlakes Science & Technology Park.”
Track of the Ironmasters is a unique Heritage Lottery funded project which aims to connect communities in West Cumbria to their rail and wider industrial heritage and the natural environment on Sustrans’ popular Sea-to-Sea routes from Workington to Seaton and Siddick.
