go:cycling is launching a series of free adult cycle
training sessions for anyone aged 16 or over at venues across West Yorkshire
Professional, qualified and friendly cycle instructors
will be on hand in relaxed, traffic-free environments to offer tips, guidance
and help building confidence for people who want to get cycling. Participants
can be total beginners who’ve never been on a bike, lapsed cyclists who are
thinking about getting back in the saddle again or people who were inspired by
the Tour De Yorkshire.
Training sessions across West Yorkshire.
Sessions take place between 10am and 12 noon on Saturdays
throughout the summer. They start at the OSCA Foundation in Halifax, Keighley
University Academy, Huddersfield’s Leeds Road Sports Complex and the Fearnville
Leisure Centre in Leeds on Saturday 9 May and at Wakefield’s Thornes Park
Leisure Centre on Saturday 16 May.
There’s no need to book in advance and people don’t even
need a bike to take part. go:cycling will provide everything people need for
sessions free, including various sized adult bikes and helmets, although people
with their own bikes and equipment are also welcome.
Set up to encourage more adults in West Yorkshire to
cycle more often, more safely the go:cycling project provides free training for
those people who want to cycle but are lacking confidence or experience. The
go:cycling team also organises a range of events and rides where people can
build up their miles and confidence with other riders.
More information can be found at www.wygocycling.com or
by contacting email@example.com and people can keep up to date
with go:cycling by following @wygocycling on Twitter and the WY go:cyclingFacebook page.
Co-ordinated by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority in
partnership with the West Yorkshire’s districts and national cycling charity
CTC, go:cycling promotes free adult cycle training, free bike maintenance
sessions and works with the West Yorkshire Travel Plan Network to encourage
cycling for commuting and business-related travel. It is supported by the
Department for Transport through the Local Sustainable Transport Fund.
