Cycling is Good for

  • The global environment - If people used cycles rather than cars for shorter journeys (less than 5 miles), less "greenhouse" gas would be produced.
  • The local environment - Just imagine what a busy road, currently packed with cars, would be like if the people were riding cycles instead. So quiet, no fumes.
  • Society - Most people could use a cycle for personal transport. If cities were designed around pedal cycle transport, people wouldn't be excluded from normal social activities if they didn't have a car.
  • Yourself - Cycling is cheaper than driving and more flexible than using buses. It's also a great way to enjoy yourself and one of the most simple and effective ways of getting fit. Cycling, even at a gentle pace can help you to feel good and look great. Why waste time and money on boring gym exercise bikes?

A46 Stoneleigh proposals

A46 Stoneleigh - improved plan

Representatives of Cycleways (The voice of cycling in Warwick District) met with Warwickshire County Council officers in early September.

They were pleased to see that the plans, as far as both cycling and walking are concerned, were much improved from the earlier proposals.

Pedestrian/cyclist phases are now planned at the two A46 exit slip roads with Toucan crossings at the two entry slip roads and shared pedestrian/cyclist paths on both sides of Stoneleigh Road, in the vicinity of the junction. Signalisation of the junction will also make it safer for vehicular cycling.

Volunteer Mechanic Wanted

Coventry Visually Impaired and Sighted Tandem Association (VISTA) are looking for a volunteer bike mechanic to look after their tandems during the riding season. They ride every two weeks between April and September each year from the Resource Centre for the Blind in Earlsdon and their regular volunteer mechanic is stepping down after many years of helping us. The role is to go to the garage where they keep the bikes between rides, check them over and repair any faults listed in the "fault book" after each ride. If anyone is interested they should ring VISTA's club secretary for a chat about it ; Clive Rayner on 024 7646 4111
