How much is too much? Cycletta.

Hmm, I wanted to have a look at the cycletta in Swindon and was then told it was £42 (for the 40km route). This struck me a a bit ridiculous, and consequently tweeted about it. No reply currently from cycletta, but I did get one from EtapeCymru:

@elzrocks hi, the extra investment goes into lots of safety, post event pampering, amazing venues and goodie bags. Fab cyclist experience

Yeah ok, safety needed etc, but Wiggle’s Magnificat had post event massage (not that I used it, but I did see people that did!). We also got a commemorative medal (which actually I had no idea about until I got it). I entered this for £9 (alright with a discount), but it’s still MILES cheaper than cycletta. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s a great idea, but with times like this, for some of us £42 is a hell of a lot of money (thanks to my lovely twitter people here who also agreed with me). Also with so few things happening in Basingstoke, I have to look further afield. Swindon is a town I used to know fairly well.
I cannot afford to do this. £42 is about what I have left weekly, and that has to cover my mobile bill, food, etc.

I would like to point out I am not having a go at anyone here. I just think it’s a high price to pay, when we should be encouraging more people to cycle. Especially women.

I promise this wasn’t a rant!

If you don’t agree with me, that’s fine. I’m not bothered!

Keep smiling.
