Just a brief newsletter this month as we have just had news of our funding and need to sit down and work out our summer plans! Funding is limited this year so if anyone was some spare time to volunteer with us please get in touch!

To celebrate National Bike Week, the Colchester Travel Plan Club is running a Colchester Cycle Challenge between the 10th and 25th June. The challenge is open to any Colchester workplace and is free to take part. Use the challenge as an opportunity to encourage your colleagues to try the cycle to work or to cycle at the weekend.

Happy Handlebars will be at the Young Children’s Festival on the 17th June with all sorts of bikes to try out and help and advice on hand to help families cycle more.

Andy and his team at ATW Cycles are offering three led rides from their shop on the Seedbed Centre on Severalls Business Park every Saturday. Rides include a relaxing countryside ramble, a ladies only ride and a faster ride.

Reminders of the Bike Kitchens opening times and Re-Cycle’s bike sale.
