Winter Wheelers

Winter Wheelers is a great way to conquer the cold and get more people enjoying wonderful winter bike rides. With a focus on building cold weather riding skills and, of course, winning prizes (inc. a new bike worth £1,000!), Winter Wheelers aims to make riding a year-round activity.

The 25-day-long competition, from 1-25 December, is not about who can ride the most miles, it’s simply about taking part and encouraging others to do the same.

This challenge is all about encouraging one another to keep those rides rolling, conquering the cold, building on cold weather skills, wrapping up and taking part.

Road Quality Survey

Lancashire County Council is asking for residents’ views on Lancashire’s highways and transport services – from the condition of roads and footpaths to the quality of cycling facilities.

The council’s highways team are encouraging people to complete the National Highways and Transport (NHT) survey, which measures public satisfaction with services across different local authorities. You can have your say on your roads and transport locally by completing the short survey.

The results will be compared with the views of other members of the public across 111 local authorities in England & Scotland. It will help the county council make future decisions on where to prioritise their resources, share best practice and identify further opportunities to work with other authorities in the future.

This year, the council have made marked improvements to reduce the impact of their work on the environment and are set to achieve a 15% carbon saving in our carriageway capital programme. They recently received a national award in recognition of their Highways Decarbonisation Strategy, which includes the use new lower carbon materials and techniques for road maintenance.
