Bury St. Edmunds Cycling Activity Day

Last weekend, I was delighted to attend the first Suffolk Cycling Open Day of 2022, hosted by The Way To Go Suffolk and very well supported by We Are Cycling UK.

I attended the day with one of my colleagues on behalf of Suffolk Roadsafe to have a chat or provide advice on Family Cycling and other related subjects. We were also available to provide some additional assistance for the Led Ride into Bury St. Edmunds Town Centre towards the end of the day.

As well as The Way To Go Suffolk, We Are Cycling UK and Suffolk Roadsafe, there were a number of other teams, agencies and companies available at the event.

Bury St. Edmunds Rickshaw were present, along with their new EcoCarriers service, offering free rides on their awesome rickshaw cycles, while Bury St. Edmunds Police were doing free postcode marking to help prevent cycle theft and make it easier to get bikes returned to their rightful owners should the worst happen.

Outspoken Training were providing mechanical checks and services and had their bicycle powered scalextric so that we could have a fun (if slightly unusual) race with each other.

There was also a fantastic range of e-bikes available to try from local companies Eezybike and Spoke and Motor, which a great many of us took the opportunity to have a go on around the event area.

After we’d all had our fill of checking out some of the awesome e-bikes, cycles and activities on offer, it was time for our Led Ride into Bury St. Edmunds town centre to have a very enjoyable cup of tea and a scone.

We Are Cycling UK‘s Suffolk Representative, Nik did a fantastic job in making use of the local cycling infrastructure to lead the ride with the two of us from Suffolk Roadsafe providing some additional assistance to keep us all together and raise visibility to other road users where needed.

Thank you to everyone who was involved in making the day so enjoyable and I hope to see some of you at future events like this!
