Access FundThis is the scheme run by the Council to promote Active Travel with a grant from central government. With all the events of the last 6 months it is easy to overlook all their good work. You may remember they acted very quickly when the pandemic began and arranged for key workers access to bikes to get to work. They have not stood still and are involved in the following:
1. Finalising a report covering the Key Worker Cycle Scheme, which was available between April and July.
2. Preparing the evaluation report for the Access Fund 2017-2020.
3. Funding a Cycle Friendly Employer audit for the hospital site https://www.cyclinguk.org/cycle-friendlyemployer
4. Using Strava Metro https://metro.strava.com/ to aid in their work. See other article.
The Access Fund has supported CycleWight very well over the last few years and we wish them well as they continue to deliver various parts of their programme,
