Appeal for cyclist witnesses

Most of Colchester’s residents will be aware by now of the shocking murder of Nahid Almanea, the Essex Uni student on the Salary Brook trail last week.

The police are currently looking for two cyclists who were seen in the area at the time. Here is a link to the Police’s call to the cyclists to come forward. Please get in contact with the police if you can help with identifying these cyclists as any piece of information could be crucial.

If you are an Essex University student or know someone who is, make sure to check your student emails and the Uni intranet for information about alternative travel arrangements that could help you feel safer, particularly from Greenstead and The Quays.

DSG’s Ice Cream ride!

DSG ice cream ride

Lovely photo from DSG!  Neil Allen, heading up the ride said, “ The annual DSG ‘Ice Cream’ ride was well supported with 13 members of staff enjoying a brisk 8 mile ride via Stanway Green where a stop was made for a well earned rest and a slurp of the rapidly melting ice creams”

Bike Week Activities

As you might be aware, this week we celebrate National Bike Week! See what some of our members- Colchester Borough Council, Defense Group Support and Essex County Council – have been up to:

Colchester Borough Council 

Dr Bike at CBC 1 June 14

Staff members have been offered two free Dr Bike sessions to bring their bike along for a health check. These have proved very popular, with several bikes lined up throughout the day waiting for their turn:

Also, staff members were encouraged to team up and see who can log the most rides  over Bike Week. Six teams have entered the challenge- the winner still to be decided as the week is only half way through!

Defense Support Group

DSG staff have a delicious reason to go out on their bikes this week! Their traditional Ice Cream lunch ride, consisting of a gentle 8 miles ride to Stanway Green and back,  will coincide with Bike Week. Come back to see photos of the ride soon!

Essex County Council

ECC had 24 bikes visit Dr Bike yesterday and 68 people took part in their Bike Week breakfast. The Bike Sheds were heaving with over 80 bikes, so looks like lots of staff are cycling in this week!
