Bike Week 2010 got off to a popular start on Church Green this morning with a ride to Aston Pottery. Members of Witney Mountain Bike Club, CTC Witney, WitneyBUG, Velo Specialist Cycles and others gathered at the start to hear the Deputy Mayor officially open Bike Week in Witney.
Describing himself as an occasional cyclist, Councillor Harry Eaglestone wished 30+ cyclists “an enjoyable week of events promoting everyday cycling for everyone”.
Today also marks the official release of the Witney Cycle Map, unfurled here for the first time by the Deputy Mayor and the well drilled Mountain Bike Club.
A joint collaboration between WitneyBUG and West Oxon District Council, the map is one in a series of projects to provide bicycle users with the information and the infrastructure they need.
Witney’s Bike Week Events continue throughout the week including an exhibition in Witney Library.
