Adult Cycle Training now free!January 22nd, 2013
Thanks to extra funding from Bristol City Council, a one-to-one session with one of Life Cycles professional urban coaches will cost no more than an hour of your time. Covering a broad range of topics and with sessions catered to individual ability, theres never been a better time to learn how to ride with confidence on the road.
Life Cycle UK has trained over 300 adults and 1000 children within the last two years, ranging from complete beginners to those seeking to improve their rush hour strategies and refine their road technique.
Bristols Mayor, George Ferguson says “Bristol should be a city where everyone of any age feels safe to cycle. I understand that if you are used to the enclosure of a car, cycling may feel less safe but it’s easy to learn to cycle with confidence. Cycle training isn’t just for children; it’s for everybody who wants to switch to healthy and convenient transport for at least some journeys
Poppy Brett, Director of Life Cycle UK says with congestion ever increasing, cycling is a really convenient and time saving way to get around the city; but we understand that people feel very nervous about cycling in traffic which is why Life Cycle offers a full range of confidence boosting training.
We have accessible training points across the city and easy on-line booking, just visit Life Cycles website: http://www.lifecycleuk.org.uk/cycle-training-adults
A £5 refundable deposit is required to secure a booking. No bike? No problem, there are two sites where we offer bike hire for an additional £5.Tags: Ashley Down, BCC, bike, Bishopston, Bristol, Bristol City Council, charity, Cotham, cycling, George Ferguson, Horfield, Life Cycle Uk, local, Mayor, Poppy Brett, Redland, St Andrews, training Back to news
