Can Colchester improve on the last amazing year of cycling?

Colchester hosted it’s own Tour Series cycle race to capture some of the glory of the Tour de France, new bike racks at Colchester station were filled in days and they now need many more to meet the growing demand. And best of all, thousands of people got out cycling, many for the first time.

There’s lots of cycling to encourage you to get back out on a bike. For more information contact Richard Monk. Tel: 01206 506412.
