Tejesh is CTC's South East Development Manager, working with CTC's cycling development team in Essex, Hampshire and the Chilterns.

Tejesh spoke from a personal view point of seeing an increased number of parents bringing their children along to local cycling events and activities since Sir Bradley became the first British winner last year.

The interview, just hours before British cyclist Chris Froome won the 100th Tour de France touched on the opportunities in the community for people of all ages.

His evidence came on the same day that the Government's Chief Medical Officer urged local authorities to invest in cycling, as a cure for over 20 long-term medical conditions.

Led rides in Winchester

A series of led rides, due to take place over the summer in Winchester and Fleet has been launched. Designed to help newer riders build their cycling confidence, the rides are part of a programme of activity run by Hampshire County Council, in partnership with CTC.
Winchester women who ride

Four women and one trainee woman (preschool) set out from River Park in Winchester at 1pm on Wednesday 23rd May. It was the inaugural occasion, marking a series of rides planned over the summer in order to inspire new cyclists- part of my role, working with Hampshire County Council, to encourage people to get on their bikes.

The weather was fantastic (and so were we) equipped with our bikes, a positive frame of mind and the ability to not take ourselves too seriously- especially when the photo opportunity at the start of the ride was taken!
