Do you know someone who would like to learn to cycle or improve their confidence on two (or more) wheels?
Thanks to grant funding from Sustrans and Sport England, Swindon Cycle Campaign has organised free events to help everyone get cycling – from toddlers to teens to OAPs.
We’ve already held three events on 2nd and 3rd April, and 28th May, which were a great success, as you can see from the pictures below.
A further event will be held at the Swindon County Ground Athletics Track on the following date:
The events aim to be inclusive and offer a hub of free support and advice for anyone interested in getting cycling. As well as both adult and child training, there will be opportunities for free bike safety checks, repairs and security marking. And a fleet of disability cycles, and electric bikes will be available to trial for those who need a bit more support.
We’ll also have local bike shops supporting the event, giving people chance to try a range of cycles from trikes to e-bikes and equipment to carry children.
British Cycling ride leaders will be leading novice-friendly guided bike rides to Coate Water and around some of the nearby network of traffic-free cycle paths. Follow Swindon Cycle Campaign on Facebook to keep updated.
Pre-booking for the adult and child ‘learn to cycle’ and ‘cycle-confidence’ sessions is essential as spaces will be limited. Book here on Eventbrite. All other events will be run on a drop-in basis.
