Free Family ‘Learn to Cycle’ and ‘Cycle Confidence’ Events

Do you know someone who would like to learn to cycle or improve their confidence on two (or more) wheels?

Thanks to grant funding from Sustrans and Sport England, Swindon Cycle Campaign has organised free events to help everyone get cycling – from toddlers to teens to OAPs.

These events will be held at the Swindon County Ground Athletics Track on the following dates:

  • Sunday 2nd April 2- 6pm
  • Monday 3rd April 12.30-4.30pm
  • Sunday 28th May 2-6pm
  • Monday 14th August 12.30-4.30pm

The events aim to be inclusive and offer a hub of free support and advice for anyone interested in getting cycling. There will be opportunities for free bike safety checks, repairs and security marking. And a fleet of disability cycles will be available to trial for those who need a bit more support.

We’ll also have local bike shops supporting the event, giving people chance to try a range of cycles from trikes to e-bikes and equipment to carry children.

British Cycling ride leaders will be leading novice-friendly guided bike rides to Coate Water and around some of the nearby network of traffic-free cycle paths. We’ll be announcing more in the coming weeks too, so follow Swindon Cycle Campaign on Facebook to keep updated.

Pre-booking for the adult and child ‘learn to cycle’ and ‘cycle-confidence’ sessions is essential as spaces will be limited. Book here on Eventbrite. All other events will be run on a drop-in basis.
