21st June 2010 - New Cycle Maps for Waveney

Green Party Councillor, Graham Elliott, has been working with tourism officers at Waveney District Council and with the Beccles Cycle Strategy to produce a series of cycling maps to promote sustainable tourism and leisure in and around the Waveney Valley. The project has been developed over a year and includes an overview map showing cycle routes throughout the area and five more detailed “loop maps”, providing step-by-step directions for circular routes and information on places of interest along the way.

Graham Elliott said; "The country lanes, villages and market towns of the Waveney Valley are ideal for family cycling. We are keen to actively promote this area for cycle based tourism and the new cycle maps, which highlight some of the best local routes, will help do just this."

The maps will be available to download from the new cycling pages on Waveney’s tourism website www.visit-sunrisecoast.co.uk.

Graham is now working with Sue Bergin of the Beccles Cycle Strategy to secure funding to get printed copies of the maps available.
