Unearthing Historic Bikeways in England

Check out a new project that launched on Kickstarter in April, historian and bicycle advocate Carlton Reid is proposing to locate and, if needed, excavate miles of old cycleways, and to connect them to the current bicycle network. Also, check out Reid’s new book: Bike Boom.

From Reid: “What you get from official bodies and planners is we can’t provide for cyclists because we don’t have enough space. But this project is proving that not only do we have the space, but we’ve had it for 80 years.”
