This month we chatted with Liz Bethell from St James’ Primary School about her work as a bikeability instructor, growing up on her bike as a bit of a tomboy and how she’s held onto her favourite bike for a long time. We might be slowly drifting into autumn but there’s still plenty happening in the Colchester cycling world, so without further ado, let’s get going…
This month we bring you news of an award for Cycle Colchester stalwart Pam Nelson, the success of Sustrans’ trailblazing Winstree Rd Community Led Street Design project, more cycle security events with Colchester Bike Kitchen, beginner rides from Cycling UK, the upcoming Cycle County Active County conference in Chelmsford, some exciting job opportunities and lots more!
This month we had a chat with Tori Cook, Cycling UK’s new development officer for Essex. Tori talks about big cycling challenges, taking a break and then getting back into riding through cycle confidence training and how it’s kept her happy and healthy – both mentally and physically.
We chatted with John McArthur about his cycling epiphany 30 years ago.
