ANDOVER’S newest cycle route, The Lakes, has been launched by the Mayor of Test Valley Councillor Jan Lovell.

The Mayor pledged to come back and cycle the entire length of the route before the end of her term; even though this means learning to cycle.

The council says The Lakes cycle path is an attractive route suitable for all the family.

A council spokeswoman said: “Cyclists are being encouraged to try out the route, and challenge themselves to go the distance.”
