How I can help
Most folk can learn to cycle if they can balance well enough to walk. If you don’t use it though you can lose the confidence to cycle even if you once could. Don’t despair – have a look at our award winning video ‘Back to Biking’ which followed a group of determined 70somethings rediscovering the joy of cycling. Some folk can cycle who find walking difficult.
Your lesson will commence in a traffic free zone with an assessment of your present cycling ability and not assume any skill so you wont feel out of your depth. It is not just your ability that we check, but your bike’s roadworthiness and you will be advised what is needed so you can get it done. We will ask you about your aspirations for cycling whether to improve health and fitness, as a mode of transport or for pure pleasure.
