BLYTHE TO BELGIUM
After spending the majority of the season riding as a stagiaire for the South African Konica-Minolta squad, Britain’s Adam Blythe will return to Belgium next year to ride for top Belgian amateur squad, the Davo Cycling Team.
Blythe impressed many in his first year as a senior, with six wins and 25 other top-ten results. Perhaps his most impressive ride of the year was for South Africa’s Christophe Van Heerden, where he helped him to win the Tour of Hong Kong Shanghai.
TRAFFIC-FREE ROUTE OPENED
The final segment of the traffic-free route between Boston and Lincoln in the East Midlands has finally opened.
The 20-mile route along the former Lincoln to Boston Railway lines beside the River Witham is the ideal place for inexperienced cyclists to gain confidence in a traffic-free environment as well as being a useful transport link for cycling commuters.
