Keeping busy in Colchester

After a busy summer, things have remained hectic into the autumn. CTC Cycling Development Officer Richard Monk tells us what he's been up to.
Riders on a suburban street in Greenstead

We ran a very successful ride leader training day at Greenstead Community Centre. We put the trainees through their paces and had the obligatory bike checks.

We’ve also kept a busy schedule of cycle rides and learn to ride sessions.

On top of this, we held a joint cycle ride with Colchester MIND, which had a good turnout,  including a lot of new faces.
