Cy­clists en­joy vil­lage cy­cle paths dur­ing bike week

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

ATEAM of cy­cling en­thu­si­asts have en­joyed the scenic sights of Peter­bor­ough vil­lages while ped­alling along the 40 mile Green Wheel route.

Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil’s Trav­el­choice team or­gan­ised the fun ride as part of Na­tional Bike Week.

Over 50 peo­ple joined them along the way, but just 15 keen cy­clists stayed the course to con­tinue the ar­du­ous but sat­is­fy­ing route.

Coun­cil cli­mate change of­fi­cer Jenna Hi­ley said: “It was a great way to see some of the city’s more ru­ral ar­eas.

“I have lived in Peter­bor­ough for four years but this was the first time I had got out to visit some of the more re­mote parts and I would strongly rec­om­mend other peo­ple get on their bikes and do the same.”

“The Green Wheel is a great route and I would rec­om­mend any cy­clist to get out onto it.”

Ms Hi­ley com­pleted the en­tire route in a highly re­spectable four hours.

The group’s jour­ney be­gan at Ferry Mead­ows and took in vil­lages in­clud­ing Peakirk, Glin­ton and New­bor­ough, where the group stopped for a well de­served lunch break.
