Cycle Competition


A lucky lady from Crewe is ready to pick up a brand new bike, after winning a competition to celebrate the opening of the first phase of the Connect 2 Crewe to Nantwich greenway.

Joan Tudor will visit JE Williams Bike Shop, on Edleston Road, in Crewe, to claim her prize. She correctly answered a question posed in the Chronicle about the length of the new greenway.

When it’s completed the greenway will create a 4km rural corridor between Crewe and Nantwich alongside the A530, Middlewich Road.

It will be set well back from the main road connecting the excellent riverside walks in Nantwich with Crewe’s historic Queen’s Park, which is undergoing a massive restoration.

The greenway will let people visit both of these areas easily by foot and by bike.

Phase one runs from King George V Playing Fields to the Rising Sun pub at Wistaston.

Connect 2 is a nationwide sustainable transport project, which encourages people to make everyday journeys by foot and by bike. The scheme is promoted by Sustrans, the UK’s leading sustainable transport charity.

Councillor Andrew Knowles, Cabinet member with responsibility for health and wellbeing, said: “I hope Joan enjoys her new bike and experiences the delights of the greenway first hand. Cycling is a great way to keep fit and it is also a cleaner and cheaper way to travel.

“I am sure that the greenway will help improve the life opportunities and health of many people in Cheshire East.”

Councillor Jacquie Weatherill, ward member for Crewe West, said: “I was at the opening of phase one of the greenway and it is a really exciting project for the area. It has opened up some of the countryside around Crewe and Nantwich.

“With spring around the corner I hope people will get out and explore the greenway for themselves.”
