Please contact email@example.com
if you have any questions or need further information.
We have bike spares available that may be of use to you. Please
for further information.
We have reconditioned bikes available for purchase at very reasonable
prices! They range from kiddies to adult sizes, prices from £5 to
£50. We’re also happy to take old bikes off your hands, whatever
their condition. Those that can be will be reconditioned and old
wrecks will be used for spare parts. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
if you’re interested in buying a bike or would like to donate one
to the cause.
Bike Ride Leaflets
Here are some local bike
ride suggestions to wet your appetite. Ultimately they will
range from short to long, on road, off road, or a combination
of both. We have designed leaflets to help you. They include
a key to indicate the length, difficulty, and terrain, a map
with key decision points marked along the route, helpful descriptive
text, and photos to give you visual markers.
You can print off the leaflets yourself by downloading a
PDF file from the list below. You will need to print the file
double-sided and it will then fold into a leaflet. Great printed
in colour, but fine in black and white also. Alternatively
you can request to have leaflets printed off for you at a
small cost of 50p per leaflet, by sending an email to email@example.com.
If you have any favourite local bike rides that you think
should be listed here please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would need descriptive text, photos if you have them, and
co-ordinates to produce the map. We would be happy to help
you put this information together.
Other Cycling Initiatives
We are looking at ways of improving the cycle network
and facilities for bikes in our area:
In agreement with the owners we have installed 3 bike parks
on the side wall of the village shop, so you have somewhere
to put your bike now instead of leaving it on the pavement
where it’s at risk of being run over! So, no excuses, leave
the car keys at home and pedal or walk to the village shop.
Wouldn't it be great if the disused railway that runs from
Yarwell through Nassington, Kings Cliffe, Fineshade, Wakerley,
Barrowden, almost as far as Seaton could be transformed into
a cycle/walking track?! We have dipped a toe into looking
at the feasibility of this and realised very quickly that’s
it’s a big project that none of us have the time to take on
currently. Is there anyone out there with the passion/time/skills
to take it on? If so contact email@example.com.
Any information/ideas/questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would love to be able to set up a scheme whereby people can
give/get lifts to various destinations, thereby optimising car usage.
We would like to assess the level of interest before putting a lot
of effort into this. If you’re interested, or need further information,
please contact email@example.com.
Cliffe Village Forum is a great place to post a request, whether
you’re in need of a lift or would like to offer one.
CallConnect is an on demand bus service that operates only in
response to pre-booked requests (on a 'dial a bus' basis). There
is no fixed timetable as the route the bus takes is defined by passenger
demand and can differ each day.
Anyone can use the CallConnect bus service for any reason and
as frequently as required. The service uses modern, fully accessible
minibuses, and most services operate between 7am-7pm Monday to Saturday.
The CallConnect minibus will pick up and set down at designated
locations in each village or town. Home pick ups and drop offs are
also available for people who are unable to use conventional bus
services due to age, disability or mobility impairment.
Registration to become a CallConnect member is FREE, but you must
be registered to book a journey. Fares depend on the journey but
are generally good value, and concessionary bus passes are valid.
Please visit Welland
for more information and online registration/booking.

Transport section? Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
