For your diary

With the current weather being so miserable, it is time to think about better weather and to save the dates of our two key 2017 summer cycling events:

CTC Cornwall  Camping Trip  – Saturday 3rd June and Sunday 4th June, 2017

Usually a ride of approximately 40 miles; an overnight stay at a camp site with evening meal at a pub or restaurant; breakfast on site and cycle back.  Camping gear transported separately and the option of cycling just one way with transport the other way.

CTC Cornwall Long Summer Cycle Ride – Sunday 13th August, 2017

A longer (up to 80 miles) all day ride with transport back for bicycles and cyclists.  The last two years have been rides from Liskeard to Lands End and Liskeard to Lizard Point.  This year’s ride will be from Liskeard to somewhere on the north coast.

We very much hope you can join us!

 

London Bike Show

The UK’s largest cycling show, the London Bike Show, returns to London’s Excel from 16th-19th February, 2017, promoting a celebration of cycling.  With a huge selection of road bikes, commuter bicycles, mountain bikes and children’s bikes on display, plus a wide range of clothing and accessories, it’s a great place to look for a new bike or cycling kit.  A ticket to the show will also gain visitors entry into three other events running simultaneously:  Triathlon Show London; the Outdoor Adventure and Camping Show; and Oceans Festival.  For further information and to purchase tickets visit thelondonbikeshow.co.uk

 

Close Pass Initiative for Cornwall?

WMPcyclingdistancesHead of Traffic and Armed Response for Devon and Cornwall Police have confirmed they are looking at how they can implement West Midlands Police’s close pass initiative in Devon and Cornwall.


“It really is starting to look like there is a real change at Devon and Cornwall Police, with even senior officers coming on board and accepting there are big issues around cyclist safety that the force can and must address.
Now is the time to build bridges between cyclists and police and cement this new relationship!” William Nel-Barker, Plymouth Cycling Campaign,  January 2017
