Richard Huish College Bike Day

Richard Huish College Taunton have recently held a College Bike Day Event for their students, offering an opportunity for them to look at ‘all things cycling’

Free bike maintenance and checks were offered by On Your Bike, with Avon & Somerset Police providing bike free security tagging. The Road Safety Team were also in attendance offering road safety advice.

Officers from both Somerset West & Taunton and Somerset County Council used the event to facilitate more engagement with students and tutors. The recent Taunton Garden Communities project for cycling and walking was discussed, as well as the new Local Transport Plan currently under development for Somerset, which is looking at the barriers which reduce travel choices.

The day was a success for all the students and provided the councils with important feedback around their consultations.
