Creative ideas are being sought for a new street art community mural at a St Albans cycle path.
The family fun day will take place on Saturday, March 8, where residents will get the opportunity to contribute ideas for the Alban Way.
Young people from the Cunningham Hub Youth Café will be gathering ideas for a mural they are creating to decorate the tunnel under London Road. Accompanied by a professional artist, they will be asking passers-by how they use the Alban Way as inspiration for the mural.
Siobhan McSwiggan, Sustrans Community Champions Officer said: "We hope that lots of people will come and support the project and see how cycling on the Alban Way can be a great way to get out and about by bike. We would love for the whole community to be involved in the look and feel of the new mural. This is the perfect opportunity to learn more about the cycle way’s fascinating history too."
There will also be a chance to take part in creative activities including bike safety checks and learning about the old railway that once ran along the Alban Way.
During the afternoon, there will also be an eight mile, off-road bike ride for families along the Alban Way to the outskirts of Hatfield.
Before setting off, cyclists will be able to test their pedal power by making a healthy drink on a specially adapted ‘Smoothie bike’. Dr Bike will also be on hand to carry out bicycle safety checks and simple maintenance.
The day has been organised by St District Council and Sustrans to take place from noon to 3pm at the Alban Way entrance in Orient Close.
