Event description

Description

Want to get out on your bike more often but aren't sure of the roads? Come along to our cycling skills sessions and we'll teach you how to cycle safely on local roads. It's easier than you think, and completely free.

Participants must be willing to wear a helmet and able to ride a bike (start, stop, turn safely without excessive wobbling). If you would like to come along but don't know how to ride a bike, let us know and we'll organise a beginners class for you.

Sessions run as a progressive 5 week block and last between 60 and 90 minutes. As they are progressive participants would be expected to be able to attend the majority of sessions. Please let us know beforehand if you would like to come, and if you are using your own bike or one of ours.

Meeting point is at bike racks opposite South Beach Kiosk where St Meddans Street meets South Beach Esplanade.

Week 1 - 18th July – Traffic free environment. Basic bike control and balance.
Week 2 – 25th July - Quiet roads and cycling infrastructure. Signalling and turning at T junctions and crossroads.
Week 3 – 1st August - Relatively quiet roads and cycling infrastructure. Roundabouts and crossroads.
Week 4 – 8th August - Busier roads and cycling infrastructure. Traffic lights and multiple lanes.
Week 5 – 15th August - Busy roads. Multiple lanes, bus lanes and busy roundabouts.
