As I ride on my bikeAUthor Unknown
I ride by faith and not by sight
While the wind blows in my face
I think of His Amazing Grace
Lord protect me as I ride
For I know that you will be by my side
15th July 6-7pm – Ticketed and Free Virtual Discussion: Everything to know about cycling
25th July 10am-4pm – Cycle Repair and mini craft market at St John’s Church grounds
During lockdown, I was sent an email from a large sports shop in Staines saying that they had run out of bicycles! Who would have thought that? Who has bought a bicycle recently? I have certainly seen a lot of newbie cyclists out on the road and parents taking their children out for a cycle. On the one hand it is a wonderful thing to see, but at times it has been scary to watch!
The Eco-Church team have teamed up with the charity Sustrans, whose mission is to make it easy for people to walk and cycle. We are fortunate to have Xavier, a local who lives in Runnymede and who heads Sustrans, available to conduct a:
- Free live Q&A session on “Everything you wanted to know about cycling” on the 15th July between 6-7pm so come armed with questions! Register for your free ticket on EventBrite below.
- Free cycle repair on the 25th July at St John’s Church grounds along between 10am – 4pm. Talk to Xavier on the 15th to book a spot with him. There will also be a small craft market. So bring your bicycle over if you want him to have a look at it, and browse the craft market while you’re waiting.
If you want to know what Xavier thinks about the future of transport, you can watch his free webinar here. A quick word from Xavier about the session.
Before attending the sessions we have put together a number of resources to help you get started. There are tips on teaching children good cycling practices, as well as advice for anyone who would like to cycle to work. Have a watch and read of them if you’d like to find out more!
