Cyclists enjoy village cycle paths during bike week
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.
