The last in the Cycle Chilterns series of winter Brewery Rides. Same format as usual; turn up at the brewery between 10am and 11am and grab a 'Beer Token'. Head out on your bike for a bit and do your own thing or follow our suggested route map and on your return you can exchange your 'Beer Token' for 'Actual Beer'. What's not to love?
Rides are open to everyone. Absolutely everyone. (Except under 18s for obvious reasons.)
Now in its sixth year, CTC Cornwall’s Equinox for ShelterBox spring event offers a choice of three road routes and two mainly off-road routes. The road routes start as usual from Devoran Village Hall. The start for the off-road routes and the mid-ride refreshment point for the road routes returns this year to Elm Farm, near Portreath.
We take a brief look at what local campaigners can do to boost political support for cycling in their area.
Since last April, over 17,000 emails have been sent to incumbent councillors as part of the national Space for Cycling campaign - calling for safer infrastructure conditions so that people of all ages and abilities can cycle. In places with strong campaign groups such as Manchester and Newcastle, a huge number of letters have been sent by members of the public and a high proportion of councillors have responded positively.
Richard's mobility gradually decreased after he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. However, since finding Experience Community mountain trike group, Richard is able to go out for rides with others and rediscover the outdoors.
Experience Community is a not-for-profit community interest company that provides films and information about walks and other leisure activities for people with disabilities and the wider community. They also have a programme of regular mountain trike rides that help people of all abilities access the countryside in Yorkshire and beyond.
On a cold winter's day in early February, inspired by CTC's Space for Cycling Campaign, Bradford Cycling 4 All headed out on to the city's roads to show just how much space other road users should be giving cyclists, especially users of adapted bikes who can be easily missed.
Bradford Cycling 4 All are an inclusive cycling group in West Yorkshire. Inspired by pictures of a similar stunt in Riga, the group fitted their bikes with cages custom made by a local artist - a colourful, physical reminder to fellow road users of the space cyclists need - and they headed out on to the streets of Bradford.
