Ride Active is a partnership between British Cycling and Big Birmingham Bikes aimed at providing fun social cycling practice activities for adults (aged 16+) initially in comfortable traffic-free environments such as parks and multi-use games areas, and then progressing to gentle led rides to improve confidence.

  • Learn to ride for total beginners
  • Fun traffic free practice circuits for improvers
  • Activities to develop basic cycling skills
  • Traffic free led rides
  • Short on road led rides
  • All in a fun social environment

These sessions allow riders to practice and improve their skills, while encouraging them to cycle in groups and develop links with other cyclists.

We have friendly, experienced instructors, and bikes and helmets are available to use during the sessions.

Also look out for our summer “Sofa to 50km Cycle Challenge” programmes.

PLEASE NOTE: Ride Active sessions vary during the year, for the latest sessions please check www.letsride.co.uk – type “Birmingham” into the search box, click on the magnifying glass icon and scroll down to find the sessions that have “Ride Active” in their titles.  We also run sessions in association with Cycle South Brum: http://cyclesouthbrum.com/rideactive/
