A recent introductory bike ride for families and newcomers to cycling was organised by Cycling UK Alton as part of national Bike Week. A five-mile route took in Anstey Park and Anstey Mill Lane with a stop at Holybourne Pond, where a heron and several ducklings were spotted. The return was via the cycle path along Anstey Road and back roads to Alton Community Centre.
A second easy-paced ride will take place on Saturday 8th July, leaving the Community Centre at 10am. This time a longer ten-mile route will include a coffee and cake stop halfway round. All are welcome, just turn up on a roadworthy bike. For more details, see the poster below.
