The week long course is being offered by Cycle Chilterns, a project encouraging everyone to cycle more in the area. It is a great opportunity for your child to take part especially if they have missed out on Bikeability in the past.

Three years ago Laurie Shields had been retired for a number of years: "I was coasting along in a comfortable if unexciting and not very demanding rut towards the inevitable," says Laurie, "I had no significant medical problems."

Inclusive cycling at Avon Tyrrell

At Avon Tyrrell, The UK Youth Outdoor Activity Centre in the New Forest, the staff have been working with Hampshire County Council to provide events as part of their short breaks programme. These events allow families with children with additional needs and their siblings to have a break and take part in a variety of outdoor activities.

As part of these short breaks, families are able to use some of the Centre's adapted, all-inclusive bikes and off-road wheelchairs, both on the cycle tracks and off-site.

West Midlands PCC Bob Jones meets CTC Campaigner Paul Middleton

 

CTC launched the Road Justice campaign, which is sponsored by Slater & Gordon Lawyers, to urge the police, prosecutors and courts to put policies and practices in place which demonstrate that bad driving is taken seriously and actively discouraged. This document examines the role of roads policing in keeping cyclists safe and ensuring irresponsible drivers are brought to justice.

Every police force, serious collision investigation unit and road safety partnership has also been sent the report.

Come along and enjoy free led rides in the Chilterns this summer!
Chiltern cyclists

Cycle Chilterns have organised a series of led rides this summer open to all. In particular, they are great for families, people getting back into cycling or those who just prefer to ride in a group.

Led by qualified and experienced ride leaders, the rides will follow many of the local quiet country lanes, catering to the needs of the group, so no-one is left behind. The group usually stops for a relaxed coffee and there's always time to chat while cycling. The emphasis is on fun and enjoyment!
