What a delight to see excited children of all ages enjoying the sheer liberation of cycling safely and freely in the beautiful Hulne Park last Sunday.
Congratulations to the team at HospiceCare and Alnwick Cycling Club for such a well-organised event. Thanks must go to His Grace The Duke of Northumberland in allowing this rare occasion of access to bicycles.
Perhaps he might consider facilitating more of such family fresh-air fun by opening the park to bikes every Sunday.
This, along with the Wooler Wheel, Coast to Castle, the new Warkworth-to-Alnmouth cycle track, and the anticipated Alnwick Bike Track, Cycle Hub and Aln Valley Railway cycle track, we could end up the fittest, healthiest, happiest county in the country.
