Well worth it

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Telegraph -

THIS is an area were the city can be­come a Cen­tre of Ex­cel­lence as Trottz quite rightly points out. I re­mem­ber that in the early ’80s the Milk Race was held in Peter­bor­ough which was a fan­tas­tic event. The city is very flat and lends it­self beau­ti­fully for cy­cling both as a sport and also a means of com­mut­ing. The city needs to ex­pand the fa­cil­i­ties for safe cy­cling and that in­cludes main­tain­ing the cy­cle­ways. But let’s not de­tract from the event and the spec­ta­cle of what hap­pened here with the cy­cle tour. It was a great event and a credit to those who or­gan­ised it. I do hope that this and other events like this will in­crease so that we can show the world what the city can do. For the slight in­con­ve­nience it cre­ated it was well worth it.
