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!

Local CTC campaigner Mike Ashton explains how a number of dedicated CTC campaigners in Hampshire, local authority officers and cyclists successfully worked together to introduce a new cycle route between Horndean and Havant town centre.

A new cycle route was built between Horndean and Havant town centre following a campaign that started in 2003. The purpose of this paper is to outline the stages and describe the process followed.
