February 2018

The wonderful Lesley Easter has received an award for creating Community Cycle Clubs in the West Midlands promoting mental health and wellbeing through cycling. Lesley was awarded this recognition by West Midlands Combined Authority for the work she has achieved since July 2017 with Walsall Aboretum Community Cycle Club (ACCC) and Smethwick Beat the Streets CCC and New Life CC among others.
The event was held at West Bromwich Football Ground and was hosted by Adrian Goldberg.
Lesley was subsequently interviewed live by Alex Lester on Radio WM – listen to her wit (wittering) here from 2 hours 7 minutes.

 

Please note the following change to the management of our rides 🙂

        • Details of rides will be entered onto the calendar on the website by the ride leaders (emails will still be sent to members in advance of a ride).
        • The members will then text or mail the ride leader to confirm that they are joining the ride and where from.
        • The ride leaders will then – after the ride – enter the ride data onto the calendar on the website (miles/names on ride/anything else that might be useful)
