The day after The Green Fair
Inspired by yesterday's Green Fair I decided to leave the 4X4 at home today and cycle into Walthamstow instead. And I was so pleased I did. Cycle parking is so much easier than driving around trying to find somewhere to park.
And let's face it, cycling is "green" - just like these London Borough of Waltham Forest trade refuse sacks, seen here this morning beside the cycle stand on the corner of High Street and Vernon Road E17.
Also at the Green Fair were Kier, who are responsible for the see-through sacks which can be identified here. They bear the message Kier Street Services and Waltham Forest Council - working together to keep Waltham Forest clean.
With attractive and convenient facilities like this, I feel certain more and more drivers will be persuaded to give up the car and take up cycling.
