Cycle Show Supercit

This was our last race of the season, so we thought we’d go out with a bang at the Cycle Show – the UK’s biggest bike show.

The Cycle Show welcomes over 29,000 bike loving visitors to the three day event held at the NEC in Birmingham. The weekend included the VeloBirmingham mass participation sportive ride as well as all the top bike brands from around the world.

We can't wait for the Cycle Show on Saturday! We'll be catching up with all our friends and especially our fantastic kit…

Racing was fast and furious, and unfortunately rather crash-ridden – Lucy was taken down in a painful crash resulting in two fractures to her collarbone. Alice suffered a puncture but was otherwise unhurt. Luckily Jenny Corser had a safe race and came home in 10th!

A rather painful end to the season for Lucy.

Operation Close Pass comes to Exeter

Road user education on sharing the road: the #OpClosePass initiative got underway in Exeter today.

Tom was quoted in the article

We are very grateful that Devon and Cornwall Police has begun live operations today, particularly as it’s on our doorstep.

Local cyclists will be familiar with the close passes that happen on Cowley Bridge Road, so we’re very appreciative that it has been chosen as the site of the first Close Pass operation in Exeter.

And there was a mention of our involvement in the project

Some of the camera equipment fitted to the police officers cycles was funded by Cycle Engage UK, a not-for-profit organisation that aims to encourage cycling in all its forms via community engagement and its own women’s racing squad, Team RGB Building Supplies.

Whilst the girls raced in the fantastic Tour of Witheridge Moor, DS Tom was providing neutral support in the men’s race which ran alongside.

Racing relies heavily on volunteer input so it was great to be able to give a little back to our sport.

Jenny Bolsom, Jenny Corser, Lucy Driver and Alice Staniford were racing at Tour of Witheridge Moor by Exeter Wheelers Cycling Club on Sunday – here's what JB thought about it 👇😊

We’re all about sharing our love for cycling and we recently had a social ride on Dartmoor which was a lovely opportunity for the team to bond in an unpressured, race-free, environment.

A little social ride across Dartmoor. Highlights included: climbing, more climbing and ponies! 😍(And cake!)
