The site is aimed at promoting both the wonderful countryside of the area, as well as the advantages of using cycles for short journeys, such as popping down to the shops or cycling to school.
It also includes the Jubilee 2012 Cycle Route, devised as an easy 25-mile circuit that anyone can ride, and which uses a combination of quiet lanes and off road cycle-routes making it suitable for a family or friends cycle ride. This passes both through Whitchurch and Andover, where it uses part of the National Cycle Route No.246, launched last year by the transport charity Sustrans.
Coming soon – participants will be able to visit various Jubilee related landmarks along the route and obtain a Certificate in recognition of their ride.
Plans are also in hand to look at special signing along the route, which will put Whitchurch truly on the Map.
Whitchurch is an ideal location for cycling, with all local facilities within a short trip. With quiet countryside with river valleys and downland on its doorstep it is also a perfect base for leisure riding.
The site also includes links to places where further information is available together with some preliminary plans for Bike Week next year.
