I am just emerging from a very busy Bike Week in Colchester. Let me take this opportunity of congratulating you and the team on a very professional and impressive programme of activities on behalf of my Cycle Champions project.
You, Phil, Aidan and Hal were great ambassadors for cycling.
I was able to visit you at a number of the schools you attended and was impressed by the activities you were running with the children, both in the playground and in the classroom. Having spoken to the schools, I know they were delighted with the activities and the reaction of the children. This can only make my future work with them easier.
I watched Hal working patiently with one child who was nervous of even going near the bikes at first. Hal coaxed the lad to get on and eventually get both feet on the pedals.
We were blessed with the weather for much of the week although I appreciate that you were caught in one sudden and dramatic downpour. read more here
