Newport to Sandown route. Work on the badger damage at Merstone is to be carried out this week. The track at Alverstone is to re-open at the beginning of March. There is no official confirmation of that though it is from a member who has links! We have written to Southern Water but no reply.
Much in the news is the new highway code. As an affiliated group of Cycling UK we have received this video about the new changes . https://www.cyclinguk.org/safer-highway-code-cyclists
