This is a round trip from Minster to Deal to see cycling improvements there. Adrian Oliver, Project Co-ordinator of Cycle Friendly Deal will be our guide. Ride leader, Beatrice Shire 07484 863554.
Cycle Friendly Deal has developed new routes, provided free events and training, installed more cycle parking, created a new Cycling & Walking Map and launched the Deal-e-Bike hire scheme. All this is due to a grant from the Coastal Community Fund and extra support and funding from Deal Town Council. More details, maps (including the new Pier to Pier route between Deal and Ramsgate), and information about cycle shops and local cycling groups on the Cycle Friendly Deal pages on Deal Town Council's website.

Levelling Up Fund survey
Canterbury is in the top priority group for the Government's Levelling Up Fund. The Fund allows a local area to bid for up to £20 million to support improvements to culture and heritage, public areas like high streets and parks, and public transport, cycling and walking. Canterbury City Council will be responsible for putting together a bid for funding and local MP, Rosie Duffield, wants to work with them and with other organisations on the bid. To help with this, Rosie Duffield has created a short survey to find out what priorities residents and businesses have for the Canterbury district. The survey has six questions, two are on transport.
