This was from a Facebook message from people accessing the use of the bikes and trailers today under their own guidance:
“Thanks Stuart! We had a lovely ride after being cooped up inside all morning with the miserable weather, then we went for a cycle and the sun shone on us. Bob my partner towed the trailer and I had bike on it’s own which was lovely! Only went to the viaduct but so lovely to get rid of the cobwebs! Thanks 🙂”
