Sustainable Crediton are promoting a cycle ride from Exeter along the Exe Estuary Trail, next Saturday 19th October, promoting the availability of folding-bikes for hire from Exeter St Davids. Further details at http://tinyurl.com/searide

Advanced warning

All is not lost regarding the Teign cycle path!  In the near future there will be a demonstration at County Hall in Exeter. The plan is to meet on bikes at Countess Wear and cycle to County Hall.

Please pass on this message to all cyclists, walkers, ramblers and anyone else who is keen for this project to go ahead.  It would be lovely to see Teignmouth traders join us as they stand to gain increased trade from the cycle path. 

Watch this space for time and date. 

Now is the time for action!

Bike Week 15th – 23rd June

Bike Week, the UK’s biggest mass participation cycling event, takes place between 15 – 23 June. 

Bike Week events offer something for everyone; from families, schools and companies, to seasoned cyclists and those who have never cycled before.

2012 saw almost half a million people taking part in the celebrations of cycling across the UK. This year, Bike Week is asking the nation to dig out their bikes, get back on the saddle and fall in love with cycling all over again!
