GID Green Impact Cycling Event

Green Impact Cycling event at the Department of Geography and International Development  a success.

After this ride i’m really motivated to get out on my bike more often! Especially in weather like this!
Dr Andrew Miles

Today, Wednesday 16th of March under early spring azure skies the department of Geography and International Development held a 7.5 mile cycling event for green impact. “We wanted to support cycling and show off the many benefits to students and colleagues alike. There are many traffic free or bike friendly roads in Chester and it was my aim to show this off and hopefully encourage more support and uptake of cycling at the University of Chester” Anthony Cliffe

For cyclists, a stop for coffee and cake half way on a ride is almost a rite of passage and so at the half way point, to support local business (our choice had no way been biased from their recent award winning best cycling Café in Chester…Honest!) and to fuel up we enjoyed excellent cakes and coffee at Meadow Lea Farm. As we’ve cycled it was free calories! It was an excellent quiet traffic free route to Mickle Trafford and we’d like to thank those who took part from the department and other departments such as SPS.

“After this ride i’m really motivated to get out on my bike more often! Especially in weather like this!” Dr. Andrew Miles  

There was big interest in a weekend ride for those who’ve emailed saying they could not get time off work for today and Anthony is working on doing this again but on a weekend. If you’re interested in this please email Anthony at a.cliffe@chester.ac.uk

See you on your bike soon!
