Bike lovers get in gear for March Sefton Cycle event

Anyone with an interest in cycling is encouraged to attend the next Sefton Cycle Chat at the MeCycle Café on Station Road, Ainsdale.

The evening session, on Tuesday March 6, runs from 6pm until 8pm and is an ideal opportunity to talk about cycling issues and news around Sefton.

The latest of many regular meetings, a number of riders, enthusiasts and local groups are set to come together and debate the top topics that affect cyclists in the borough.

The previous session, which took place in November, dealt with a number of issues including the new crossing at Fishermans path and updates on the roll out of Safe Urban Driving (SUD) courses for professional drivers.

All local cyclists will be warmly welcomed at the March session and will be encouraged to engage with their ideas and thoughts on topical matters.
