Last week our volunteers and local residents took part in a litter pick along the Coast to Coast route in Durham. We aim to make all our routes as attractive to cyclists and walkers as possible, and the work done by our volunteers goes a long way.

If you are interested in getting involved there are more litter picks planned for the next couple of months.
