Inspired by the Team GB Olympic Cycling Team? Now is your chance to improve your cycling skills through free adult cycle training funded by Bath & North East Somerset Council, NHS Bath & North East Somerset and provided by Cycling Instructor.

The training is available for people who live, work, or study in the district. Approximately 120 spaces are available on a first come, first served basis for a free two hour session. Lessons take place seven days a week.

Councillor Roger Symonds (Lib-Dem, Combe Down), Cabinet Member for Transport, said, “Using a bicycle is one of the best methods of sustainable travel for people to adopt. Bath & North East Somerset Council is working with our partners to offer these adult cycling lessons that will encourage people to think differently about how they travel and support them to make choices that promote easier travel with reduced traffic congestion and pollution.”

The sessions can cover the complete beginner, help people to ride confidently and safely with their children, and support commuters to tackle busier roads and junctions.

Paul Lowe, Director of Cycling Instructor Ltd, said, “The sessions are taken by a qualified Bikeability instructor and are suitable for people of all standards. Cycling is not only fun, but people can reduce their carbon footprint at the same time.”

Denise Burton, Assistant Director – Health Improvement at NHS B&NES, added, “It's a low-impact type of exercise, so it's easier on your joints than running or other high-impact aerobic activities. But it still helps you get into shape.

“For example, someone who weighs around thirteen stone will burn around 650 calories with an hour’s riding, and tone their legs and bottom. If you ride up hills or off-road, you'll also work your upper body.”
