Get Cycling in Leicestershire!
Cycling is a fun way to get fit, save money on fuel and is a more environmentally friendly way to make everyday journeys. If you haven't cycled before or don't feel confident then why not try a free cycling course for over 16s. Don't worry if you've not got a bike – we can loan you one during the course (subject to availability). A refundable deposit of £20 is required for this, payable at the first session. Helmets are also available for loan (£10 refundable deposit).
•Training is delivered over five two-hour sessions. Courses are based at various venues around the county, such as parks, where you can start cycling on easy paths before progressing onto the road when you are ready.
•You can choose between weekday, evening or weekend sessions. The times of sessions vary at each location.
•A basic introduction to checking your bike is included in each course.
