I am in Sudan this month, so haven't been able to interview a local Colchesterian cyclist. I tried to find a Sudanese cyclist to talk to, but having been unsuccessful thought I would share my observations of cycling in the Sudan with you instead! Read the full interview here

April news is much delayed as this month’s blog is being written from Sudan! It’s 40 degrees, the local internet cafe’s have closed down as most people access the internet via their phones now. Having tracked down an internet cafe, the availability of the internet connection has been patchy so communication with the Colchester Cycling Community has been tricky!

So this month’s update is brief...

Not strictly cycling but this may be relevent to you when you are on your bike or on foot. ECC are proposing to remove the pedestrian crossing at the top of North Hill. If this would effect you please respond to their proposal giving your views before the 1st May 2015.

You can read the proposal here, see TRAF/4803 towards the bottom of the page.

Find out about Wivenhoe Bike Kitchen’s new opening hours and if you fancy a bit of volunteering in exchange for help with maintaining your own bike, Wivenhoe Bike Kitchen want to hear from you.

If you think your year 6 child could benefit from a free 50 minute cycle safety theory session to highlight highway rules, myth busters and gain general cycling advice, then ECC in partnership with Sustrans are offering schools free sessions for year 6 classes regardless of whether they all cycle or not.

As we are not around to interview someone in Colchester about cycling, we offer some insights into cycling in Sudan as something a little bit different for this month!
