Better By Bike will help you grow your cycling confidence. It is a 6 week, progressive programme for adults, comprised of 6 core sessions plus a 7th, optional on-road training session.

If you have recently started cycling or are not confident cycling on your own, join us on this programme. The programme is about encouraging you to cycle for more everyday journeys as well as for personal wellbeing.

The aim is to build your confidence, develop basic cycling skills; increase knowledge looking after your bike and learning about how to get where you want to go, using the best route.

  • Cycle skills to build confidence
  • Fixing common mechanical issues (eg punctures, taking a wheel off a bike)
  • Planning a route
  • Being comfortable cycling in all weather conditions
  • Keeping your bike secure
  • Traffic-free / quiet spins
  • On-road training (optional 7th session)

Bicycles can be supplied, just let us know in your booking.

The programme will run every Wednesday (6pm - 8pm) from 20th October to 17th November and one session is on Saturday 23rd October from 2.30pm to 4pm.
