April 2020 News

It’s been a funny old month hasn’t it? Some of us are now working from home, others are furloughed and others are carrying on in essential roles. No matter what you’re doing, thank you for doing your bit to keep us all safe and hopefully riding a bike is keeping you active and happy! We’ve got plenty of news this month, mostly on a theme you’d expect, so if you’d rather steer clear of that then we fully understand!

There’s no new interview this month but if you haven’t already then we really recommend you go back and have a read of last month’s with Re~Cycle volunteer Richard. His enthusiasm for the charity and riding his bike is infectious (if you’ll excuse the term!)

Wivenhoe Bike Kitchen

On a chilly Monday evening at the end of January I took a ride to meet Jo and Jay, founders of Wivenhoe Bike Kitchen. I leant my bike against the fence outside their workshop in the Canoe Store at the old Cook’s Shipyard in Wivenhoe, knocked on the door, and was greeted by Jo – and the offer of a hot cup of tea. How could I say no…

Catherine and Stuart Johnson 

This month I met Catherine and Stuart Johnson for a cup of tea and a catch up at The Minories tearoom. We talked about cycle campaigning, utility cycling and how riding a bike quite simply puts a smile on your face!
