UPDATE: Cycle Sunday returns to the Downs in JULY

As announced on twitter, following the successful inaugural event on 19 April, fantastic news there is to be another event NOW ON 12 JULY. Keep in touch through their group.

As Sam Saunders writes in his blog, on that Sunday morning in April “a section of Circular Road on the Bristol Downs was opened for people and bicycles. For a few hours hundreds and hundreds of people of all ages had a whale of a time on bikes – learning, practicing, coaching, watching, being serious, having fun and having more fun. It was a very sociable and good natured event with plenty of professional support. When I asked a medic for the casualty count as I left she said, with a big smile, that it stood at none.”

Unfortunately the day was spoilt for a few people passing by on Ladies Mile who were subject to an unreasonable attitude from a police officer when riding two abreast, as Sam explains further on in his blog posting.
