To Win This Election I’m Getting On My Bike

There is a lot of talk about lack of engagement in politics and a failure by politicians to get out and speak to voters.

I want to change that in Wantage.  That is why I visited so many of the communities in the constituency in a 100 mile odyssey on 26th March.  And to show my commitment to sustainability and investment in cycling, I did it on my bike!  It was called the Tour de Wantage.

Places that do not normally get canvassed were visited as I set out to engage as many communities as possible while pedaling over 100 miles around our large rural constituency.

I’ve set out a few pictures below:

Thanks to everyone who gave me such a warm welcome.  I intend to follow the Tour de Wantage up with an epic marathon on May Bank Holiday Monday.
