Stage Six of Britain’s biggest professional cycle race will cross the country from the start in Bath, heading through Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire on its way to a challenging final section through the heart of the Chilterns on Friday 12 September.

CTC’s Sara Randle approached the Tour of Britain organisers, Sweetspot, and acted as liaison between the organisers and the stage 6 stakeholders in order to secure the stage for the benefit of the Chilterns.

This Easter, Cycle Chilterns will be offering a number of free Bikeability sessions to children across the Chilterns. Following the same popular format of our sessions last summer, the training will take place over a week with two-hour sessions each day.

On Monday, the children will go through Bikeability Level 1, learning basic control and signalling movements in a safe environment away from cars and traffic. Children aged 10 years or over can then carry on to Bikeability Level 2.

BucksMTB Rides with Cycle Chilterns

Join CTC affiliate club, BucksMTB, for a great introduction to mountain bike riding in the Chilterns this year on one of their regular weekend group rides.

BucksMTB members have been riding and promoting mountain biking in the Chilterns for many years and have built up a wealth of experience and knowledge of routes in the area. In 2013 with the help of Cycle Chilterns funding, five more group members were trained on the CTC’s Mountain Bike Leader Course to become ride leaders.

Cycle Chilterns summer Bikeability sessions give children more confidence!

Last summer, 37 children took part in a successful series of Bikeability courses run by the Cycle Chilterns project. The courses took place over two weeks in Tring and Amersham.

For those of you not familiar with Bikeability, it is the new 'cycling proficiency'. Two levels were offered during the week, with Level 1 covering basic bike skills in a playground and Level 2 covering road skills. The course aims to give children more confidence and awareness of being on the road.

Many parents signed up for the course to give them a bit of peace of mind for when their children cycle with their friends on the road, arming them with the right skills and increasing their awareness.

Free bike safety checks in the Chilterns this winter

Cycle Chilterns will be running a number of free bike safety check sessions at town markets and train stations across the Chilterns this winter.
Free bike safety checks from Dr Bike

To help keep your bike running smoothly and safely this winter we will be holding regular Dr Bike sessions at a variety of locations across the Chilterns. During each session a qualified mechanic from a local bike shop will perform a free, basic bike safety check while you wait.

Basic bike maintenance is important at any time of year, but particularly during winter when weather conditions, dirt and grit on the road can cause problems with brakes and gears much quicker than in the dry summer months.
