Alan Marsh: Huntingdon

I was given my first bike for passing my 11+, yes I'm that old, and have loved cycling ever since. It gives me a feeling of freedom and wellbeing, and when I was working, time to myself to think and solve problems. As I get older it helps me to keep reasonably fit and healthy. I like to encourage people of all ages to cycle, both as a means of transport, and just for the pleasure of it. ​

Our hard working Ranger and Led Ride volunteers

Rangers help keep the miles and miles of National Cycle Network well signposted and report any issues so everyone can access safe cycle routes. 
A fantastic Led Ride starts from outside Ambiance Cafe, St Neots, every 3rd Sunday at 10:30am. Click here for more photos and info on routes.
