Darlington Cycle Forum
There was a meeting of the Darlington Cycle Forum on 10th February, minutes are available online.
According to the same webpage, another meeting was held on 27th April, but no minutes are available online as yet.
I wasn’t at the meetings, but I’m going to email the address given to find out how to get involved.
A quick ride
Just got back from a quick local ride. Just up the bridleway from Barmpton Village, then along to Peartree Farm and down the farm track/road to the A167, but I was out for about an hour.
This is one of the reasons why Darlington is good for cycling; you can be out in the countryside and away from roads very quickly. I put up two pheasants, was examined by some curious cows and rode through a field of sheep. All just 15 minutes from my front door.
Of course, there are loads of reasons why Darlington is bad for cycling – the busy roads, clingy clay, poor drainage and lack of good trails – but today, with a blue sky and slight breeze, it was good.
