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.

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...

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.
