Farcycles cycle group have recently started to build a small safe cycle training area on unused land in the Folly Sports Park, Faringdon. The park has been designed as a mini-village with fun landscaping including some of Faringdon landmarks such as a mini Folly Tower, Town Hall. All Saints Church and White Horse Hill. The road layout mirrors some parts of Faringdon and includes junctions and a roundabout. Our vision is that all local children learn to cycle. This project has the potential of helping hundreds of children and families. Children can learn to cycle and progress to become roadworthy cyclists. They will also gain confidence, balance, coordination, fitness and independence. Adults will also benefit, as we plan to run cycle training sessions for people who can cycle, but are fearful of traffic and we also plan to start "Cycling for Disabled" sessions. The whole community will benefit from a healthier more active population and the town will be safer with less traffic congestion and pollution. This is particularly important at school pick up and drop off times when children are exposed hazardous traffic and pollution. Cycling will help open up the local countryside to children and adults, able and disabled. The proposed cycle training park is a good place to start.
