Coventry Cyclist August update

There's very few good guides to what is going on locally. The best that I know of is the Coventry Cyclist put together by George Riches. It offers a monthly summary of everything cycling going on in and around Coventry. George has agreed to let me share a few bits on the Blog, but if you'd like your own full copy send him an email to:

Coventy Sport Survey


Bradley Wiggins wins the Tour de France and Gold at the Olympics. Will this bring a change in attitudes to cycling in Britain? Or are sports things you pay money to do in buildings?
See the council's Sports and Leisure Survey 2012 Why not a cycle path along the Sowe Valley? So that everyone can get a bit of cycling in and the sporty types can access the lanes of Warwickshire without braving heavy traffic.
Please complete the questionnaire no later than Friday 24 August 2012.

Happy Cycling!
