Cycle Colchester team at Culver Square event

culver sqaure

 

The Cycle Colchester team took part in Culver Square’s event ‘Enterprise Essex’ on the 25th and 26th July. This was an exciting opportunity to talk to fellow cyclists, people who would like to get back on their bikes or give it a go for the first time or just curious passers-by and let them know what’s available to them in Colchester.

We talked to over 100 people and had over 50 kids draw themselves a champion badge- walking, scooting or cycling, according to preference!

CHAPS Men’s Health Day

Pulp Friction (our pedal powered smoothie maker) will be making an appearance at CHAPS’ annual event taking place on Thursday 28th March from 10am – 4pm at Weston Homes Community Stadium.

The event is free and aims to reacquaint men with their health, making health checks as convenient as possible by offering a quick but thorough service from medical professionals.

There will be a veteran car rally as well as around 20 stalls covering all aspects of men’s mental and physical health, including aortic aneurysm screening, heart checks, prostate cancer screening, diabetes tests, physiotherapy and sports injury detection and treatment.

Last year almost 200 men attended during the day and the event helped to prolong the lives of at least four men by identifying two life-threatening Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms (AAA) and two cases of prostate cancer.
