The Big Breeze Bike Ride took place in Lister Park earlier today. The event, aimed mainly at women and young families took place on the traffic free roads around the park. The participants were accompanied by experienced cyclists who were able to give a bit of help and guidance to those new to cycling, or those returning to cycling after a long break. I think the overall aim of the scheme is to get more people onto bikes, which has got to be a good thing. (Although I have to admit to leaving my own bike in the shed this morning and arriving by car as it was raining heavily)!
