Rob Penn and Anna Cipullo on Cycling

Rob Penn and Anna Cipullo on Cycling – the pleasure of pedalling and the beauty of cycling!

6pm – a short bike ride, for those who fancy it, followed by refreshments!

7pm – a talk on the joys and benefits of cycling. Opportunity for questions.

What is the most efficient self-powered means of transport ever invented?

What is reckoned to have been a key factor in the emancipation of women?

What gives you the thrill of speed and the benefits of exercise?

The bicycle is a remarkable thing.

ROB PENN, author, cyclist, and bike-lover, certainly thinks so.

He has ridden a bike most days of his adult life, has one for every occasion, has built his own dream bike, and once pedalled round the world, by the shortest route, 40,000kms!

His book, It’s All About the Bike – the Pursuit of Happiness on Two Wheels is a great read and explains everything.

ANNA CIPULLO, CTC’s Cycling Development Officer, is on a mission to see as many people as possible on two wheels in Swindon.

Please see www.ctc.org.uk/swindon and www.swindon.gov.uk/roadstransport/cycling for further information.
