When finishing my run in the Duthie Park yesterday I spotted this lot and went in about to investigate.
It turned out to be an introduction to cycling event organised by Getabout – A to B in Aberdeen City and Shire. I have to be honest, I had never come across Getabout before, but I am pleased to find them.
They had a range of goodies on offer, bike bells, mugs, maps, leaflets, pens, reflective strips and vests and were very keen to chat to existing or would-be cyclists.
It turns out they have a whole suite of Travel Tools to help us get around by sustainable transport in City and Shire – mostly alternatives to owning and using cars. Best of all to me was information on a new smart phone app for the Complete National Cycle Network – I’ll need to try this out and report back with a review, but in prospect its an excellent idea.
