Family Cycling Around Northstowe
Taking the family out on a bike ride is a great way to get some fresh air, exercise and a dose of feel good!
In June we conducted an online survey to better understand Northstowe resident’s family cycling behaviours. Thanks to all those of you who took part and well done to the two lucky winners of the £25 Decathlon vouchers. We had 45 responses and there were two key things that people requested which can help families to be more active – the identification of safer routes for cycling and a resource to provide fun cycling activities for the younger age group. So, we set to work on both requests and have come up with some local routes which range between 6-16 miles and we have also highlighted some shorter loops around Western Park and out along Rampton Road . These routes offer a mix of traffic free tarmac, off road bumpier bits and short sections on roads so take a look and hopefully there’s a route suitable for everyone. We have also produced a fun resource aimed at younger cyclists with a few challenges and activities you can do along the route!
