Three Cheers to AVDC Cycling Team (Bike It)

A few years ago the Wendover Parish Council sent, on my request, a letter to Chiltern Rail. The letter pointed out the inadequacy of the existing cycle racks at the Wendover station as they were exposed to the elements and insufficient. It also appealed for a solution to crossing the rail tracks for wheeled punters (prams, pushchairs, wheelchairs, bicycles and suitcases). The response was more than disappointing.

Last year I contacted AVDC on the same issues. Two people took on the tourch. The liaison officer (with Chiltern rail) has given me hope. Lee Stevens of the cycling team got the ball rolling for the cycle storage. Lee has moved on within AVDC. Several people have come and gone and I was afraid the task would be forgotten. Not so.

Simon Glover, of the bike it team, visited Wendover last week to inspect the installation. Here is a photo from today.
