Sparkling launch for Henley Electric Bike Network

The sun shone for the launch of a new CTC initiative in Henley this week as we linked up with the Electric Bicycle Network to bring you cycling, but not as we usually know it.
Chiltern Valley Winery and Brewery become hire point for the Electric Bikes

The Henley Electric Bicycle Network is a new project set up to get more people, both residents and visitors, cycling in the Chilterns.

The Cycle Chilterns project has funding from the Department for Transport and is developing lots of plans to make cycling easier and more accessible across the Chiltern Hills.

Electric bikes provide up to 70% battery assistance making light work of hills. They are ideal for those who don’t feel fit or confident enough to tackle a hilly route through leg-power alone, and it opens up cycling to a much wider audience.

Cycling bonanza at Colchester Young Children’s Festival

Hundreds of families turned out in brilliant sunshine for the annual Young Children’s Festival in Castle Park in Colchester and CTC took along a load of bikes to try out.
Balance bikes give new cyclists a headstart

We were inundated by children, eager to do skids and turns on the grass, and then we gently cajoled mums and dads to join them.

Possibly one of the most rewarding things you can do is to get a child to ride a bike by themselves for the first time, so the highlight was the constant stream of young children whose mums asked if we could help them cycle without stabilisers. In the space of a couple of hours, a dozen or so had progressed far enough to start getting their balance ready to pedal unaided.

Threat of rain didn't dampen entries for ladies-only race, Stilettos on Wheels

The forecast was for heavy rain, the sky was grey, the umbrellas were on standby…but that didn’t stop more than 60 women lining up on the start line for the first of Stilettos On Wheels mountain bike race of this year.

With almost double the number of riders in the event this year, the competition was certainly fiercer - but with super-friendly marshals, supporters and sponsors in the arena, and a mix of expert and novice racers on the course, Stilettos On Wheels managed to maintain the fun, supportive atmosphere that sustains its popularity.
