Sweet boost for Bushfield Bike Bus riders

On Friday 5th July, nine eager Year 4-6 pupils arrived early to the Wolverton Agora bus stop, the meeting point for the weekly Bushfield Bike Bus.

They knew that all Bike Bus riders were going to be offered free cake by the owner of Tea & Toast Cafe on Church Street, Umut Alkpan. Sure enough, there was a large slice of chocolate or cheese cake for all (photo above)!

“It was a bit wet,” said MK’s Mayor Marie Bradburn (pictured below), “but we had a lovely ride despite the weather.”

This bike bus initiative is part of a national scheme set up by Sustrans and Schwalbe Tyres, and is made possible in MK by a small grant from MK Community Foundation.

Bushfield Bike Bus seeks, which began on 24th May (photo story), seeks parent volunteers to help out on Friday mornings next term. If you are interested, contact Cycling Citizens Organiser Tom Bulman at cyclingmk@citizensuk.org, tel 07962 838685.
