Free adult cycle training sessions across West Yorkshire

go:cycling is launching a series of free adult cycle training sessions for anyone aged 16 or over at venues across West Yorkshire this summer.

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.

It is supported by the Department for Transport through the Local Sustainable Transport Fund.
