Have your say

CYCLISTS are being invited to sign up to an Olympic-style community relay race across East Hampshire.

The ride, which will involve a golden cycle pump being passed from one town to another, will take place next year.

East Hampshire District Council is now looking to recruit a number of cycling ‘champions’, who can attract participants and generate interest in their own town or village.

To find out more about the event, which is funded by the Big Lottery, contact Sarah Walker, cycling development officer, on 07775 595998 or
