Report:
Another enjoyable club social. Good to meet Lizzie, fresh from her first 100km ride, and to see Robin for the first time since his election as a Cycling UK Trustee. Congratulations to both.
Lizzie and Lee Ann shared their stories of how they got into cycling with the club - lovely to hear. There was discussion about social prescribing of cycling and walking as physical activities by local GPs, Bikeability training, and the missing link for safe cycling southwards from Chilton into West Berkshire.

The last led us on to West Berkshire Spokes campaign to develop the Didcot to Newbury railway line as a safe off-road cycle route. For those interested, Robin shared a link to a recent presentation on the scheme : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95bkrU_l4V8 (do scroll on to about 2mins 30s to skip the set-up discussion). Phase 1 of the scheme was completed in 2020 with the opening of a 3-km stretch of cycleway (the Eling Way) between Hampstead Norreys and Hermitage. Looking forward to cycling that way later this year.
