Event description

Description

If you were inspired by team GB’s performance in the velodrome at Rio, but don’t feel confident enough on your bike, then this cycle confidence session could be perfect for getting you on your way.

Our trainer will review simple cycling skills including turning corners, basic road positioning, signalling and using cycle facilities such as Advanced Stop Lines. You will be able to practise on a variety of paths and roads, looking to build your confidence for cycling on busier roads.

They will also be give practical guidance on bike maintenance so that you can be confident about how to keep your bike safe and fun to ride.

Most importantly, this session is flexible and can be tailored to the needs of you and your group.

Do I need to bring a bike?

We do have a limited number of bikes available to borrow. Please let us know at least 3 days in advance if you would like to arrange for a bike to provided.

What should I wear?

Comfortable clothing and shoes. A lightweight jacket may be useful in case it does rain. Helmets are not essential but are recommended and can be provided if you do not have your own.

What happens if it's raining?

No one likes getting soaked so we will try to offer some training unless the weather makes it unsafe to do so. Our instructors will always try to find a sheltered location or offer you an alternative activity in bad weather.

In the event of bad weather, the ride may be cancelled at short notice - we'll contact you to let you know if this happens.
