On your vintage bike for station launch
National Express East Anglia in conjunction with The Bittern and Wherry Lines Community Rail Partnerships are launching a new edition of their ‘CycleRail’ leaflet at Norwich station on Tuesday 16 June 2009 at 10.30am.
Community Rail Partnership Officer Ian Dinmore, along with representatives from Norfolk County Council and National Express East Anglia, will be delivering the first batch of leaflets to the station, accompanied by a very special guest – a vintage bicycle, the historic 1895 Crypto Bantam bike.
The ‘CycleRail’ leaflets provide helpful information for visitors and tourists wishing to explore the attractive Bittern and Wherry line routes by rail and bicycle. The information provided includes details of cycle hire facilities, how to make reservations, the cycle rescue scheme, associated websites and relevant tourist information, all of which will help cyclists make the most of their visit.
James Steward, National Express East Anglia’s Area Manager for Rural Routes commented:
“We’re pleased to welcome cyclists onto our Bittern and Wherry line train services. The ‘CycleRail’ leaflet is a must for anyone wishing to explore North and East Norfolk by bike, from details of cycle hire shops in the area, to how to reserve a space for your bike on our trains; it provides lots of helpful information. The scenic Norfolklandscape, with its large skies and expansive Fens make perfect cycling country. I hope this leaflet encourages more people to explore the area by bicycle and train.”
