The musings of a Pedalling Culture Community Champion
When Isla Stanger first moved to Milton Keynes, she was completely unaware of the Redways, and the ability to get from place to place on a bicycle. Having grown up children, Isla didn’t have the usual family link to build connections in a new city, so, after seeing a flyer to become a community champion for Pedalling Culture she jumped at the opportunity.
With a background in the theatre and music, Isla has a strong connection to culture, couple this with a love of cycling and she was the perfect champion to promote Pedalling Culture.
“When I first came to Milton Keynes, I wondered where everybody lived, the entire city is very car orientated. However, since discovering the Redways I have realised what a green city it is, and how well everything is connected, without the need for a car.”
As part of her role as a community champion, Isla cycles, or walks the Redways, and documents her journeys, and findings of cultural venues along the way.
