We’ve hit 250 members

Since 1st October 2015, 250 people have joined the club. Our 250th member is Richard Leafe, the Chief Executive of the Lake District National Park.

Richard’s interest in cycling has helped improve cycling infrastructure within the National Park with new bike routes along Windermere west shore, over Dunmail and in Elterwater to name a few. Richard has worked alongside Cumbria County Council to promote cycling as an economic, environmentally friendly and healthy form of transport. This includes bringing the Tour of Britain to Cumbria, creating the Lakes and Dales Loop and promoting free guided Skyrides.
