Leading North West cycle training provider Go Velo has recently been awarded funding to provide free adult cycle training in Lancashire.
The Capability Funding, awarded via Lancashire County Council encourages behaviour change initiatives. The courses will range from "learning to ride a bike", for those who haven't ridden before or for a long time, to advice for cycle commuting, cycle maintenance and route planning. The courses are free of charge to people aged 16 and over, living, working, studying or volunteering in Lancashire.
Cycles and helmets can be provided for all participants and the Go Velo inclusion lead, Emma Mac is determined to include everyone in the training by providing adapted cycles if required.
She added: "It's really important for Go Velo to provide professional, inspiring, exciting, fun and potentially 'life-changing' cycle training to all adults in Lancashire. We believe in the power of cycling to change individual lives in a positive way!"
Go Velo is an expert at delivering cycle training and Bikeability to Children and is delighted with the return of Adult Cycle Training to the Lancashire area.
Go Velo MD Kirsti Grayson commented: "We are super excited to be able to offer this training in Lancashire. Adult cycle training empowers individuals to cycle for fitness, leisure and transport and gives people the confidence to cycle commute in both rural and urban settings in the county."
