From the Cheshire Cycling Campaign ....
Cycling is healthy, cheap, fast, and clean. It could be a key part of solving our transport problems and ensuring the prosperity of Chester. We know that people want to use their bikes more but current conditions put people off. Chester Cycling Campaign is working with other cycling organisations in the city and with Cheshire West and Chester council to push for a better, greener city by making cycling a safe and attractive transport option.
Cycling Matters! is Chester Cycling Campaign's quarterly newsletter, designed for public readership and can be downloaded here.
The Chester Cycling Campaign website can be accessed here and contains a wealth of information for those wanting to cycle in Chester and the surrounding areas.
In particular, local residents may wish to view the "Hockenhull Hobble" article which explores the countryside to the SE of Chester, including Christleton Pond, Bruera and Hargrave villages, and Hockenhull Platts. The route is 33 km (20 miles) long. There is a short off-road section over the interesting 'Roman Bridges', a series of pack horse bridges along a wooded path just to the south of Tarvin. You can access the article here.
