CityConnect Cycles: Free cycle training for adults!
Level 1 is one 1.5 hour session. Please select your preferred date. This session will take place at Fearnville Leisure Centre in Leeds. Please try to arrive at least 10 minutes before the start of the session as we need to get each participant matched up with a bike and ready to ride.
Can you already ride a bike and would like to develop your confidence and skills in a traffic-free area? One of our CityConnect Cycles Level 1 training sessions could be for you!
You will be in a small group with a qualified Bikeability instructor who will run this short, friendly and fun session. You will be taught how to check that your bike is safe to ride and bike control skills in preparation for cycling on the road including how to start and stop using your brakes, looking behind when riding, signalling and use of gears.
If you have your own fully working bike that you would like to bring with you that's great. However you don't need a bike to take part, you can use one of ours. We have a range of sizes and can find one to suit you. You simply need to bring yourself and wear comfortable clothing and trainers or something similar. Make sure you dress for the weather as the session will take place outside. This means warm clothes and gloves if it's a bit chilly and a waterproof coat if it looks like rain!
There is one further level of training to progress through; Level 2 which is run over three 1.5 hour sessions. You can register for this now if you like, or after you have attended the Level 1 session if you would prefer.
We are also running sessions in other areas of West Yorkshire. All courses and venues are listed on Eventbrite.
