The Comber Greenway from Comber to Belfast in Northern Ireland is a disused railway track that has been converted to make a combined walk and cycle way. It makes an ideal commuter route to the city, and it’s just one of several initiatives to promote cycling in Northern Ireland.
For this show I have come to East Belfast to meet with employees of Sustrans, a large UK charity that focuses on promoting walking and cycling in the UK. Imagine that! We have no such equivalent organisation in New Zealand.
Sustrans are here to promote the launch of Pedal Perks, which is part of the 4.4 million euro CHIPS project, a wider EU supported initiative that is working to improve air quality by promoting cycling.
This show has been recorded on the 5th June.
