It’s great to see a major project you have played a part in ultimately secure the funding and developed. So, I was super excited to attend the official opening of the Hereford Cycle Track (ribbon cut by cycling legend and active travel czar Chis Boardman). With a 1km traffic free wheeled sports and cycling circuit of regional and national importance, putting the County on the cycling map as one of the few UK locations to have a dedicated traffic free training, coaching and competition facility. It offers cyclists of all ages and abilities the chance to learn to ride, train at every level, and enjoy their sport without having to negotiate busy roads.
Having an early lead-out train role in the business planning, visioning and masterplan was a great privilege – a true sweet spot project where my passion for cycling and profession collided. The final sprint to the finish line for the £1.7m facility was led by Halo Leisure and British Cycling – chapeau to all ! View the track here Hereford Cycle Track
