With the better weather, more and more cycling events are now in the pipeline.  Although we will continue to focus on the coming month, we will also share events as we hear about them, so you can plan ahead!

In brief this month read more on..

New to cycling? Halfords are offering a Free Women’s introductory bike workshop on the 20 May.

Colchester Cycle Champions will be in Castle Park on 4 dates in May offering support, advice and a Free Bike Health Check to get your bike ready for a summer of cycling.

Congratulations to Key stage 1 at St Lawrence Primary School in Rowhedge for winning the Spring EcoRace, find out how your school could take part.

If you have been concerned about the recent changes to cycle lanes around North Station and the proposals to close the pedestrian/cyclist crossing across the Avenue of Remembrance, then find out more about the work of Colchester Cycling (different to Cycle Colchester) who are pressing for better infrastructure and conditions for local cyclists.

Looking ahead there are lots of charity rides both local and international coming up. If you want a challenge while raising money for a local charity, check them out, places are often limited so if you are interested you will need to register soon.

Next month is National Bike Week and there will be an Essex cycle challenge. More on that later this month.
