One of the things we love most about the Cycle Winchester mass rides, is seeing the wide variety of people who cycle in the city. From infants to grandparents, they have all joined the rides. A few mile-munching athletes, and many who are delighted to toddle to the shops. Riding comfy Dutch town bikes, ferrying the kids in a cargo bike, or easing the hills with an e-bike.
One thing we’ve learned is there is no ‘typical cyclist’. Anyone, ideally everyone, could be using a cycle to get about the city, if we had the right infrastructure.
Today we launch a series of profiles of the diverse people who cycle in Winchester, starting with Lucy, a live event artist.
We’d love to hear your cycling story too. Please contact us and let us know how you came to cycling, or how a bike helps you get around.
