At the moment it seems that every time you switch on the radio or television there is a piece about cycling. The government has just announced a £90 million package to improve cycling facilities in many towns and cities.
There is a wealth of information about cycling in Cheshire. There are also some major cycle events taking place during the summer and our part of Cheshire will be involved this coming Sunday morning.The scale of the Mercia Etape event which passes through Oscroft and involves road closures was covered yesterday.
For now though we want to report on the Jurassic Classic event that took place last Sunday the 11th. August and was Prostate Cancer UK's flagship cycle event with 1300 cyclists taking part.
Tarvin Cycling Club members Cathy and Roger Hones successfully completed the challenging 100km ride taking in the World Heritage Jurassic coastline and the villages of East Devon.
Roger said "It was a fantastic undulating route and very well organised. We were very well fed and watered en route. This was Cathy's first ever cycle event and marked my return to cycle events after successful treatment for Prostate Cancer earlier this year".
Roger also wanted to give something back by raising money for the charity which helped him with information on treatment choice.
Roger commented "Prostate Cancer UK is a great charity and I would encourage all men in their late 50's/early 60's to consider asking for a simple PSA blood test to obtain peace of mind or diagnosis of a treatable condition when Prostate Cancer is identified early".
You can find more information at the prostate cancer uk website and they are the leading UK charity for men with prostate cancer and prostate problems. If you wish to show your support for Roger and Cathy you can use the "just giving" website

There are a great many people using the footpaths at the moment as you can imagine, but many of them are wandering off the footpaths across fields and even into fields of crops which have no footpaths at all. Villagers should always make sure that they are certain that they know where the footpath runs before...
