LDP Lights Up the Women’s Professional Cycle Tour in Clacton

Local Delivery Pilot

The LDP funded project, Essex Pedal Power, was a major feature of stage 5 of the Women’s Tour which finished in Clacton last Friday. Essex Pedal Power gave away more new bikes to local citizens who had applied, and met the criteria of being inactive and wanting to start cycling. Over 50 people who had already received a bike were joined by members of the Active Essex and Essex Pedal Power team in a led bike ride that finished on the race finish line with hundreds of people cheering and applauding. Active Essex LDP also contributed to the race start in Colchester with a host of activities.
