YU Event / Milton Keynes Cycling Trip

Non-members £15 + VAT
The very first event that the Young Urbanists held was a study visit to the Garden City of Milton Keynes. Following on from this successful trip back in 2013, we are now returning to this fantastic city – this time, on bikes!
Join the Young Urbanists for a full-day cycling study trip to Milton Keynes guided by local resident and Academician Stuart Turner AoU, who worked on the implementation of a 10,000 unit area development with the MKDC and was recently engaged with the future growth programme. Come explore the city centre plan and surrounding residential development, learn from one of the original Garden Cities, meet with other Young Urbanists, and engage in stimulating discussion on the future of our cities.
Ahead of the visit, participants can take advantage of the introductory digital brochure that was created in 2013 filled with facts, articles and photos of Milton Keynes, alongside a report from the day’s learning, all of which can be found here on the website.
We would like to produce a written report about the event and the lessons learned, so if you are interested in contributing to this, please do let Bright know upon registration.
*Important information below*
Spaces are limited for the trip, so register soon to avoid disappointment.
Please note, participants are expected to cover the costs of their own train tickets (approx. £15 from London, could be more from other cities) and lunch. We encourage participants to bring their own packed lunch, but arrangements will be made for attendees to buy lunch en route if needed.
The trip will comprise approximately 23 miles of cycling around the city and will take place regardless of the weather forecast, so come prepared!
Finally, all participants are required to bring their own bike on the trip, so will need to make the necessay arrangments (beg, borrow, rent) to ensure they have one – there will not be any bikes made available to participants by The Academy of Urbanism.
