Alastair travelled out to Italy by train last weekend to take part in La Lacustre vintage cycling event. A 40 mile circuit of Lake Iseo in northern Italy. A cycle across Paris to night stop in a hotel before having to dismantle the bike and put it in a bag to get on the TGV to Milan, reassemble and cycle across Milan to catch a couple more local trains to Marone where the event is based. Around 500 cyclists took part plus some vintage vehicles too. Fantastic weather and several stops for local food on the way!

Dr Bike

Today was the last of our monthly Dr Bike sessions of 2018 in the Queen's Park. We've run 8 sessions  this year and even on a wet day in October we repaired 15 bikes. Our busiest session had over 30 bikes being adjusted and repaired. We have a great team including Bob, Charlie, Paul, Simon and myself and for most workshops we have 4 mechanics on hand. We'll be back in 2019 on the first Saturday in March.

Chesterfield SSP Cycle Fest 2018

We ran the first Cycle Fest for Chesterfield School Sport Partnership today. Five schools cycled in to the Queen's Park to take part in a range of cycling games. One school did a round trip of 18 miles. Because of GDPR we are not allowed to show children's faces or identify their schools but our instructors enjoyed it too!
