Please help!! if you know anyone who works for a local business, especially in Norwich Lanes, please ask them to join the scheme- it is free! All they have to do is decide on a discount or special offer to give to cyclists! They can sign up to the scheme here... http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/bicyclebonusbusiness

Please join the scheme yourself. It's free, you get a hi-viz slap band and a personalised travel report!! Oh and did I forget to mention that you get a discount when you cycle in to the city and go to participating shops and businesses! http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/bicycle-bonus

Meanwhile active transitioner Kerry Lane (Reskilling/TN2) is cycling the epic Lands End to John O'Groats for the cause of sustainability this summer with the charity The Otesha Project. She is cycling as part of a group of 17 other volunteers who, as well as carrying their lives on their bikes, will be stopping at schools and youth groups along the way teaching and inspiring them about all aspects of sustainability through theatre and workshops.

She will be writing some updates for the Transition blog on her way, so you can hear all about her adventures. She does however need to raise £1000 to fund the trip so if you would like to donate to a good cause then she has a just giving page and would be incredibly grateful!

To celebrate National Bike Week the TN blog This low Carbon Life is running a whole week to cycling written by Transition cyclists. click here to find all the latest http://www.transitionnorwich.blogspot.com/
