Celebrating pedal power in Monmouth
Since the onset of the pandemic we have witnessed a huge resurgence in cycling – with more people commuting to work, school and for shopping.
To encourage cycling still further, Bike-Friendly held a very successful event in Monmouth on Sunday 27th June.
We would like to thank Rachel Lilly for allowing us to use her wonderful photographs.
Vintage Cycle Ride
The Honeysuckle Vintage Ride was truly a glorious sight, featuring all kinds of bicycles and vintage-inspired outfits. Let’s face it - it’s not every day you have the opportunity to bring out your tweed plus fours or 50’s dress & head scarf combo.
Prizes for best-dressed were awarded by Mayor Terry Christopher. The charity ride heralded the start of ‘Beictown’ – a day of cycling celebration organised by Bike-Friendly Monmouth.
Bike Repair and Security
Thanks to Gwent Police, 30 bicycles were protected from theft with application of the forensic marker ‘SmartWater’.
We really embraced cycling during lockdown but the bike was second hand and very squeaky. Dr Bike sorted the squeak, sorted a buckled wheel and gave the bike a general overhaul. It was beyond my skills so I really appreciated having the experts on hand to help. We then spoke with Gwent Police and registered the bike to help against theft.
