Sustrans Promotion Has No Wheels!

Posted by chdot on April 6, 2007

Sustrans Narrow Boat
Cyclepath charity Sustrans is 30. Official birthday 7.07.07 – having started life as Cyclebag on 7.7.77.

One unexpected ‘birthday card’ is a specially painted 55 foot narrowboat, part owned by George Platts – one of the first Bristol based cycle campaigners (George thought up the name Cyclebag). He calls the boat a “moving sculpture” which is highly appropriate as noted as Sustrans is a promoter of public sculpture – including those on the Airdrie to Bathgate route.

The latest artwork will have a press launch in Oxford tomorrow and will be in Bristol Docks from June 23rd to July 14th.

    To keep up to date with the voyage of Sustrans’largest moving sculpture, the 55 foot narrowboat Mitakuye Oyasin (Lakota Sioux for ‘We are all related’), to Reading and then along the Kennet and Avon Canal to Bristol and then back to Reading, may appear over the the next few months by visiting Granny Buttons blog (google “granny buttons”) This blog features narrowboating and cycling links and is updated daily by Andrew who describes himself as “a 21st century journalist”.
