Wheels for Westbourne
Our Wheels for Westbourne cycling campaign gets under way with a series of FREE events in March.
Bike Doctor session in the Square. Get your bike out of the shed, dust the cobwebs off and get it ride-ready with a free safety check and adjustments. 11am–2pm.
Family ride on roads around the parish – about five miles. Meet 2.30pm in the Square.
Ride further afield, details to come. Meet in the Square at 10am (not as advertised in the village magazine).
Cycling: the way ahead for Westbourne? Talk on safety followed by discussion. 7.30pm at the White Horse. We hope this event will be a springboard for more events this summer.
Please chat to us at one of these events or drop us an email if you would like to get involved with our cycling campaign.
If you want to train as a ride leader, help out with events (maybe as a marshal) or give us a hand with organisation, do get in touch. You can help as much or as little as you like.
The March events are being held with Emsworth Community Cycling Club, My Journey Hampshire and Cycling UK.
Our goal is to run more events in the summer, and also to get some cycle stands in the centre of the village. But we will only be able to carry on if we can get an informal group of volunteers together.
Can you help?
The point of our campaign is 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.
Our next meeting is 7 March at the White Horse at 7.30pm. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
