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.

Inclusive Cycling: Wheelchair Tandem Cycle Hire

When Marina Beaumont re-discovered cycling, through adapted cycles, she enjoyed it so much that she bought her own wheelchair tandem which she now makes accessible to others.

When I was able-bodied I always loved cycling.  I went on many critical mass bike rides and always enjoyed places with good cycle paths.

Anna tours Bath on vintage bikes and grabs designer cycle bargains!

Jole Rider (pronounced Jolly Rider) is a charity that targets Africa to improve education and wellbeing in young people. This is mainly done by fixing up donated bikes and shipping them to Africa for kids to use for cycling to school. So to find out more, I met their lead mechanic for a bike ride.

The charity receives old bikes from the police and recycling companies, some of which are absolute vintage gems. Thanks to in-house know-it-all mechanic, David McKinven, these are often pulled out for refurbishment and sold to shops and individuals in England.

I had the privilege of borrowing a classic Malborough in 'café racer' style and touring around Bath in Somerset with David to find out more about the charity.
