Talking to/working with Sustrans
I wonder if anyone from Slow Ways is talking with Sustrans?
Staff and volunteers from Sustrans are regularly present and engaging users at busy nodes on their routes in York and I've had some interesting conversations. None of them had heard of Slow Ways (they have now!). Apparently their recent research has told them that 60% of their network users are pedestrians, so there is even talk in some quarters of rebranding to move away from the "cycle network" idea.
Clearly Sustrans is a long away ahead of Slow Ways in the sense that their network is well established, but it seems to me that the two organisations have a lot in common and might usefully start a conversation at a national level.
