CTC Essex Member Groups

A tale of dedicated people who help people cycle together
CTC attracts new cyclists to longer group rides

I attended the CTC Essex Member Group AGM, (see the contacts below), just recently and was made very welcome with lots of friendly interest in my work and a generous helping of delicious food and warm tea.

There’s something extremely life-affirming in being in a room with a group of people who cycle hundreds of miles a year, (in fact, many cycle hundreds of miles a month) and  look every bit as trim and healthy as your average 20 year old athlete.

More mountain bike trails on the way for England

Scotland and Wales might have some of the best mountain bike trail centres in the world but here's news of two exciting new developments in England.

When it comes to mountain biking it has to be said that the UK can boast some of the best trails in the world, with Wales and Scotland leading the way, England has for a long time been playing catch up. However, it's great to hear of two purpose built trail developments coming soon so we look forward to updating CTC's mountain bike trail map soon.

Bike maintenance in Essex

Weekly bike maintenance sessions have up and running throughout November in Colchester and they are proving extremely popular. CTC's Cycling Development Officer Richard Monk explains why he set up the project how it will expand.

Master mechanic Ben Paton covers the basics of good maintenance, punctures, brakes and answers any questions too. Ben Paton manages to explain all those complicated things that I've always wondered about, like why do inner tubes have different types of valves.

Essex Police call CTC’s cycling officer in for questioning

Essex Police called unexpectedly on me this week. Thinking that they must have taken a dislike to my rather shall we say assertive style of cycling to all my meetings and activities, I awaited in trepidation for the expected words of advice.

Thankfully, Sergeant Ian Banks was proactively looking for CTC to complement an Essex Police Road Safety Day of Action on 29th November.

So, CTC and Essex Police will be at Colchester Railway Station, extolling the virtues of being seen and keeping the bike in trim over the winter months.

Support new mountain biking trails in Devon

More off-road trails could be coming to Devon if a National Trust plan receives enough support.

The National Trust has recently submitted a planning application for new mountain biking trails at Plymbridge in Devon. This is a fantastic opportunity for off-road cycling in Plymouth as having this facility and the investment that comes with it will create new trails and encourage new cyclists.

To show your support, all you have to do is take a couple of minutes to go to the Plymouth City Council website and support for the project.
