Northumberland Gear Change – Free Cycle Training

Northumberland Gear Change – Free Cycle Training

Cycling is good for the environment, is carbon neutral and is good for health.  Both the Government and Northumberland County Council are encouraging and supporting more people to cycle – hence this project supporting people to cycle more!

Funded by Northumberland County Council, Jan is offering FREE cycle training skills to support adults to get their bikes back on the road.  The training includes:

  • Balance
  • Confidence training
  • Bikeability (the new Cycling Proficiency) and road safety
  • Dr Bike free safety checks and minor repairs to help people get back on the road.

The training is for all levels of cyclists from beginners, who would like to build up their confidence to go out on their bikes, to experienced cyclists who would like to refresh and learn new skills.

All those interested will need to complete an individual application form and will then be offered the training; all training areas are organised, risk assessed in advance, and the training professional delivered by qualified Bikeability instructors.

This initiative is free on a first come first served basis.  Use the links below to contact Jan, or call 07718906358.
