Leave the Batmobile at home this September!

Challenge yourself to walk, cycle, take public transport and car share this September  

Head on down to the cycle cinema at Ferry Meadows 

Join Travelchoice on Saturday 9th September at Ferry Meadows (Ham Lane, Peterborough PE2 5UU) for a free cycle cinema.

The event will show ‘The Lego Batman Movie’ and is due to start at 8pm. The aim of the event is to add a fun and engaging element to cycling and sustainable transport, so please leave the Batmobile (your car!) at home and walk, cycle, get the bus or car share to ferry meadows! Spread the word, bring a blanket and lets hope it doesn’t rain!
