Calderdale CTC have decided to apply for a small grant to look at developing women's cycling in Calderdale. The link gives an outline about how we would spend it. It would be great to hear from people on here or by email, especially any thoughts and ideas so that we can get the best possible application and be awarded the money to take this forward.
Of course, any support will be warmly welcomed.
Virginia Young Great idea-I am new to Calderdale CTC and would welcome skills and coaching at a local venue.

Think I'll start wearing a crash hat
Jane Roper I don't know you but I hate to see a fellow biker injured. I hope that it's not as serious as it looks and that you recover quickly. But yes, please, please wear a helmet in the future. It's simply not worth the risk. Get well soon!

Ian Buday I had an accident a couple of years ago suffered concussion and a broken elbow. Convinced the helmet saved me from worse.
