Go:cycling

Learn to ride/Boost your skills

  • No need to book and we provide the bikes and helmets!
  • A great sociable way to learn the basics, up to 12 people can attend these group sessions. These are aimed at people who cannot ride a bike so are ideal for anyone wanting to try cycling for the first time, or return to cycling again and improve skills and confidence to ride in traffic.
  • Sessions run every Saturday from 9th May to 25 July, from 10am to 12 noon. No booking necessary - first come, first served.

Basics in bike maintenance

  • Riding a bike is one thing but fixing it is another! Learn how to maintain your bike on a daily basis and make sure you can get yourself home in the event of a puncture for example.
  • Our tutors will cover the basics with you so you can be confident in going that bit further from home.
  • Sessions run every 4 weeks after the Learn to Ride sessions on Saturdays 30th May, 27th June and 25th July at 12noon - 1pm

Traffic free cycling/Boost your skills

  • You can ride a bike, but maybe you've not ridden for a long time and are not very confident.
  • At this level you will practice riding in a traffic free environment to build confidence, and will learn about braking, gear changes and signalling. Tutors also available to give guidance on skills and techniques to ride in traffic.
  • Sessions run every Thursday from 14th May to 23rd July between 6pm-8pm.
  • Book your place
