The Warminster wobble will be in June

(February 19, 2009)

AS PART of Bike Week, the Warminster Cycle Group is organising a one-day community event to promote cycling, particularly in and around Warminster.

 The park will play host to a day of cycle-related events, including BMX displays by local riders, advice on cycle maintenance from the town’s bike shop, bike tests, and the chance to participate in a fun ride around the town.

 Event organiser Colin French said: “During a community day here in Warminster last November we showcased our plans for the event and had a good response from local people.

 "Many residents would love to use a cycle in the town but lack confidence. In an effort to remedy this, we have teamed up with Bikeability, who have offered to come along on the day and explain how they can help children and adults alike to gain the skills and confidence to ride their bikes on today’s roads.

 "Local schools have been asked by the government to find safe routes to school for cyclists and Bikeability schemes have been set up to train youngsters on the road.
"One school already has 10 pupils trained”.
 The day will begin with a 1 to 2 mile cycle through the town with refreshment stops provided by Country Marketsalong the way, the riders will return to the park where the event will continue.
The group has its own website on
