Neighbourhood Plan

Get cycling this summer!

By May 25, 2017 No Comments

The Greening Westbourne ‘Wheels for Westbourne’ cycling campaign gets up to speed this summer with a whole series of events, as part of national Bike Week 2017.

We hope to encourage people to use their bikes for ordinary short trips around the area, instead of driving. This would reduce traffic and pollution, improve people’s health and reduce our carbon footprint.

During June we’re running a challenge similar to the one used some years ago when we launched Greening Westbourne. We’re distributing challenge cards to every home, asking people to pledge to use a bike instead of a car for one journey a week during June.

You pop your card in your window to say you’re taking part. Simple!

Here’s the rundown of the other events. See the full details here. 
Sun 11 June 2pm–4pm………..women’s Breeze ride

Wed 14 June 7pm–9pm……….maintenance class – punctures and more

Sun 18 June 2pm–4pm………..family ride – 10 miles, nice and easy

Sun 25 June 2pm–4pm………..women’s Breeze ride

Wed 28 June 7pm–9pm……….maintenance class – punctures and more
