Family Cycle Ride and Sustrans event on Alban Way - Saturday 8 March

Hello everybody I just wanted to let you all know that we are holding an event in St Albans on Saturday 8th of March. Sorry it is such short notice it’s a last minute  thing. There is an art project which is taking a local youth group to paint a mural under one of the bridges on the Alban Way. The bridge is where the Alban Way meets Orient Close. We are holding an information  stand there along with a smoothie bike and  a Dr Bike. We want to recruit more volunteers in St Albans to look after the Alban Way. The event will run from 12pm to 3pm concluding with a family cycle along the Alban Way towards Hatfield.

Update: from St Albans City and District Council -
Creative ideas needed for Alban Way mural
Come to a fun, family event on Saturday 8 March and contribute ideas on what to include in a new street art community mural for the Alban Way.
You can take part in creative activities, get your bike safety checked and learn about the old railway that once ran along the Alban Way.
Provided by St Albans City and District Council and Sustrans, the event will take place from 12 noon to 3pm at the Alban Way entrance on Orient Close.
Young people from the Cunningham Hub Youth Café will be present to gather ideas for a mural they are creating to decorate the tunnel under London Road. Accompanied by a professional artist, they will be asking passers-by how they use the Alban Way as inspiration for the mural.
During the afternoon, there will also be an eight mile, off-road bike ride for families along the Alban Way to the outskirts of Hatfield.
Before setting off, cyclists will be able to test their pedal power by making a healthy drink on a specially adapted ‘Smoothie bike’. Dr Bike will also be on hand to carry out bicycle safety checks and simple maintenance.
