Thursday 3 November 2011

Wobbly beginners, rusty returners and families are being offered free cycle training this winter.

Cycling Sundays continue at Bakewell’s Agricultural Business Centre, from 9.30am to 12.30pm until the end of November. 

The training sessions are suitable for adult non-cyclists who want to learn how to ride in a supportive environment with the help of Pedal Ready’s friendly, experienced instructors.

David Bocking of Pedal Ready said: “We’ll be showing people how to ride a bike and improve their skills through a combination of cycle games and trail riding advice.

“We’d like people to bring their own bikes but if that’s a problem we can arrange to lend them one.”

There is the opportunity to go on a short guided ride after the training session.  Road skills training is also available for people with some cycling experience.

Places must be booked by 5pm Friday, call Pedal Ready on 0114 241 2775, or email

The sessions are part of the Pedal Ready Peak District cycling programme, subsidised by the Peak District National Park Authority’s Sustainable Development Fund.
