Cycling lessons for adults and Dr Bike

We’ve come to the realisation that our Reclaim the Streets event probably won’t be able to go ahead in October and maybe not even in March next year. Many of us cycle for health reasons and it’s therefore extra important for us to ensure the health of all our members so we want to do everything we can to reduce the spread of the virus which means gatherings of hundreds maybe thousdands of people at this time is not advisable. However, we’ve managed to do some great fund-raising for this event and we decided we could adapt it and run many events on a much smaller scale.

Starting at the end of August (provided COVID restrictions allow), we’re going to start the first of our adult cycling lessons. Every second Saturday for three weeks we’ll have a beginner cycling lesson followed by a refresher lesson. At the same time there’ll be a Dr Bike available for people who have old dusty bikes in the shed that need attention. Due to the pandemic these lessons will be capped at four people each so if you’re interested you must reserve a ticket to guarantee your place. Tickets are free and available at the links below.
