‘Cycling with Confidence’ is a brand new course for anybody over 16 years old, and will support participants to build confidence in their local communities by cycling along cycling routes such as bike lanes, pop up bike lanes and canal routes.
The courses are being ran from April 2021 throughout the year in Birmingham, Solihull, Walsall, Sandwell, Wolverhampton, Dudley and Coventry. The course will also include ‘experience cycling’ which is where we will cycle to venues/attractions/places of interest.
Over 5 sessions, this course aims to achieve:
– Getting active in your local community
– Meeting new cyclists in your area
– How to cycle safely
– Bike maintenance skills
– Cycling to places of interest
– Having lots of FUN whilst learning new skills.
The sessions are 1.5 hours long, and can be delivered over 5 weeks, weekly, 2 sessions per day or condensed in a week. It totally depends on you and what you would work for you!
