It is fun, socially distant, and good for your health and environment…cycling has never been so popular.
In the last few weeks, the government and local authorities have announced many new initiatives to encourage more people to cycle…
The Active Wellbeing Society are now delighted to launch free Bikeability cycle training for adults in Birmingham.
Bikeability is a national cycling award scheme which incorporates the National Cycle Training Standard. The 2-hour sessions are totally free and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. The training will be delivered by local instructors and will be tailored to each individuals abilitiy and need.
The Active Wellbeing Society have a successful track record of delivering Bikeability for children in schools and community venues for many years as well as Learn to ride for total beginners under the Big Birmingham Bikes project. A recent example (Feb 2020) includes Mr Satnam who rode a bike after 50 years! or Soraya, who used it as an opportunity to spend more time outdoors.
During the lockdown we also loaned Bikes to help Birmingham key workers get to and from work
