Most people are probably well aware of cycling’s numerous health benefits. But its impact on the planet can make life better and safer for all people, not just individuals aiming for a healthier lifestyle.

In an effort to further encourage people moving over to bicycles, very shortly additional cycle stands will be placed in New Road Rubery and also Brook Road Park. Brook Road Park will also be the first in the District to have a Bike Repair Station installed which is vandal proof.

It is time Bromsgrove District Council stopped talking about facilitating cyclists and combating climate change and did something about it. The Council does a lot of talking but no action ever comes of it. The Council does not even have a bike stand at its premises in Parkside, Bromsgrove. The Council’s do nothing shows their real attitude to climate change.

Hopefully the Council will follow Rubery’s initiative and take action instead of words
