A newbie to CTC

Dan Callow from Sheffield has gone from occasionally going for a spin on his road bike to becoming a regular cyclist.

I have always had a road bike and enjoyed the occasional foray into the surrounding Peak District but recently I have become much more of a regular cyclist. This has got me thinking, why has this happened?

Getting parents cycling too

Leroy Luke from Leicester wanted more people to enjoy cycling, so when the CTC Cycling Champions project was able to offer cycling sessions to parents he jumped at the chance to be a part of it.
Leroy Luke and parents learning to cycle

Leroy Luke had all the skills to repair bikes and had been a Bikeability Instructor, but he hadn’t taught in a while. When the Cycling Champions project provided cycling sessions for parents at his children’s school - Barley Croft School in Leicester - he helped recruit potential new cyclists and became a big part of encouraging more people to become confident cyclists.

As Rochdale's extensive Connect2 network passed 40km in length, a special portrait bench has been unveiled with a dawn chorus by children from St. Edward's Primary School in Castleton.

Located on the Rochdale Canal towpath just south of Castleton, between the Norton Grange Hotel and the railway line, the bench features portraits of Dame Gracie Fields, Harriet Ellis (world champion windsurfer) and Lynne Coxell (Headteacher of St Edward's CE Primary school). They were chosen by local school children.

Want to get cycling in Essex? CTC can help!

CTC has already helped 3,000 people get cycling in North Essex - and now we're planning for more in 2013...
Cycling in the sun on Wivenhoe Quay

Three thousand people in North Essex have already re-discovered the pleasure of cycling, thanks to CTC, and now we want to get even more people cycling because we understand the benefits to health and the sheer sense of freedom that cycling brings.

We help people get back on a bike often for the first time in years or even for the first time ever. And then we help them go further. We make it relaxed and gentle, fun and sociable. So not only are you feeling healthier, you’re seeing new places and meeting new friends.
