Donkey Derby and Fete – Saturday 27 May

Hayling Lions Club are holding a Donkey Derby & Fete on Saturday 27 May at Legion Field (just off Legion Road), Hayling Island, from 13.00 to 17.00.

Cycle Hayling together with Portsmouth CTC will have a stall with loads of information about cycling. We also have 2 Turbo Challenge bikes (full size and a children’s bike) to see who can ride the furthest in 1 minute, with prizes for the top riders. This has been very well attended with over 100 riders competing in previous year’s events and is one of the ways we promote Cycle Hayling, the Portsmouth CTC club and generally encourage cycling. Come along and join the fun, and even better help to set up and manage the stall. If you can help out please e-mail at: Robert@CycleHayling.org.uk

R4 Woman’s Hour gives entertaining and informative program on cycling

I’m no regular listener, but luckily I happened to switch on Woman’s Hour on BBC Radio 4 this morning (while spending May Day morning catching up with cleaning, rather than getting out on my bike!) and this edition was all about cycling. I found it very interesting and entertaining, so am sharing the link here in case you want to “listen again” (be warned you men out there however – you might find the detailed discussion of saddle-related health issues a bit too graphic!!).
