Sophie borrows a bike seat (and reports back)

I met Travel West on my first day back at work after maternity leave. I was wondering how to get to and from work via nursery with my 13 month old - walk (too long), bus (too long/unreliable), car (parking/traffic jams) or bike (kit, rain, balance). The Travel West advisors suggested I speak to Lifecycle about borrowing a child seat or a trailer... and a partnership was born.

Inclusive Cycling groups enjoy "Evening Chorus" ride

Life Cycle's Inclusive cycling groups recently enjoyed a fantastic bike ride along the Avon Gorge to enjoy the "Evening Chorus" bird song.

Guided by local bird and wildlife expert Ed Drewitt, a group of over 25 cyclists ventured out into the evening sunshine on a mixture of tandems and solo bikes while Ed pointed out the numerous bird calls to be heard through the woods and river, from robins, blackbirds, wrens and blackcaps to blue tits and long tailed tits. Coming out of the forest along the river the group was greeted to a chorus of redhsanks.
