Thumbs-up for pedal power

Friday's Get Cycling Roadshow 2018 proved to be another successful year with bikes of every shape and colour rolling, bouncing, wobbling and shaking their way round Boston Market Place.

There was something for every age group as adults and children took off for a trip on the seven-seater mega-bike whilst adventurous teens and adults attempted a bizarre and hilarious selection of cycle based contraptions. Young teens enjoyed fast paced circuits around the KMX kart track and parents watched on as their youngest safely played with a variety of colourful junior trikes.

Another popular choice was the junior trikes. Sisters Parea (5) and Cassandra (4) had a great time on the two-seater trike. Their mum said: "It is really nice to come into town and see something different, we can stand back and watch the children play for a short while, even better when it's free. They are really enjoying it; they are having so much fun."

In addition to the pedaling activities, cycling visitors took full advantage of the free maintenance and minor repair at the Cycle Clinic and if they had visited the Lincolnshire Police for a FREE microchip that would get fitted in the clinic too.

Members of Boston Wheelers, the town's largest and oldest cycling club was on hand to encourage local youngsters to take up junior cycling.

Richard Tory, chairman of Boston Big Local, said "The roadshow has quickly established itself as a popular family event, and we were delighted to be the main sponsor again. A fantastic turnout with the weather staying on our side as the rain held off until later in the evening. It is great to see so many people having fun and doing something different."

This was the third year for this very popular and entirely free event, sponsored by Boston Big Local and hosted by Boston Borough Council.
