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!
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.
Tom joined Devon Live to discuss #GridlockedDevon with Exeter City Futures CEO Glenn Woodcock and Exeter City Council’s executive lead for economy and culture Rachel Sutton on how to reduce congestion in Exeter.
Yesterday we were very honoured to welcome the CycleJust4U team into Exeter as they near the end of their fantastic charity ride from John O’Groats to Land’s End.
They’re raising funds for three charities: a young rugby player, Dale Palmer who injured himself whilst playing rugby for his club (The Dale Palmer Discretionary Trust), Force Cancer and the RD&E Hospital Bramble Children’s Ward .
