Spring is in the air and the promise of warmer days ahead looks more likely.

This month we talk to Anne Dew and her husband Bodo, a local couple who have cycled all their lives.

On a local level this month the ‘24 snapshots of bikes’ exhibition at The Octagon continues until the end of March.

There is a new up to date Essex County Council cycle map for Colchester.

If you use the High Woods County Park NCR1 route into Broadlands it will be closed for maintenance for two weeks from the 12 March.

If you haven’t cleaned your bike for a while (or ever!) now is probably the best time as the winters mud, grit and debris could be damaging your bike and impeding the smoothness of your ride!

Local charity St Helena Hospice is looking for local cyclists to join their Volunteer Planning Committee to help them prepare and grow their local charity bike ride that takes place in September.

Re-Cycle are also looking for volunteers to help them out during their really busy period, mid May to September.

Would you be interested in joining a Car Club offering pay as you go driving?  If you live in Colchester, cycle for many of your journeys and either don’t own a car or use a first or second car infrequently (drive less than 6-8000 miles a year) a car club could save you money and hassle.

If you are concerned about local air pollution, find out more about Healthy Air, a campaign group including Sustrans and Cycling UK who are calling for a new Clean Air Act for the 21st Century.
