Cycle Winchester Mass Ride 5

Event
Description 

On the morning of Saturday 16th October Cycle Winchester invites you to join us on our 5th Mass Ride, bringing riders from pick-up points around the city to converge on the central one-way system for a processional lap, finishing at The Broadway. Those who wish will then proceed to the offices of Hampshire County Council, where we will present the Winchester Cycling Charter, signed by over 600 supporters to date. Rides start at 10am and we anticipate the event finishing at around 12pm.

Why are we riding?

Our aim is to get more people cycling, more often. We celebrate the joy of cycling: a convenient, healthy, clean and inexpensive way to get around Winchester. The ride will help create a vision of a better Winchester, where a critical mass of cyclists makes cycling safer and more enjoyable.

We want to support and encourage our local leaders to provide an integrated network of safe cycling routes, linking the city and satellite villages, and in so doing, deliver this better future for everyone in Winchester: children, students, working people, retired people, schools, colleges, businesses, institutions and organisations of all sizes.

Is anyone welcome to join the ride?

We welcome cyclists young and old; in fact anyone who has a roadworthy bike is welcome – just check brakes and tyres before setting off! The ride will take place on open roads, but there will be experienced cyclists marshalling the group for safety.
