Norwich City Council are undertaking a series of projects under the banner of Push the Pedalways. These initial 22 projects aim to improve The Pink Pedalway which is one of seven colour coded routes that form the city’s cycle network. Follow the link for more information and to leave feed back.
This year 2016 we are continuing to check the eating places in Norwich which have been given the disabled access merit on the Safer Food Awards web site and encouraging them to register themselves on Euan’s Guide.

Edith Cavell Pilgrimage Walking Trail
This (approx 7 mile) trail is suitable for people on fully charged robust powerchairs and mobility scooters but with able bodied support to open gates. Use the wooden bridge on Swardeston Common that takes you onto the lawn by the cattery. There is a challenging section of about 200 yards adjacent to the busy A47 which is slow but doable. To avoid this section you would need to stay on Intwood Road and go down Keswick Road and Low Road picking the trail up again on Mill Lane. In the interests of safety it is advisable to wear something with high visibility when on Intwood Road to be easily seen by motor traffic. Although pushing someone in a manual wheelchair the full length of the trail could be done by strong accomplices we would not recommend it.
