Get on your bike safely this summer with free training

Cheshire West and Chester Council’s Road Safety team has arranged free training for families in the borough looking to take up cycling or improve their skills.

Bikeability Family is a new training package to help people living in the same household cycle together. The training will enable families to plan enjoyable group rides, switch from driving to cycling the school run or help other family members develop their cycling skills and grow their confidence.

All training is provided by fully qualified instructors and compliment training currently available through the borough’s schools through Bikeability. Trainees will need to have a bicycle of their own and family sessions are for up to six people.

The health and wellbeing benefits of being outdoors cycling are well known and these Bikeability courses will develop skills and confidence while having fun along the way. Whether you and your family are relative novices to cycling or you all ride already but would like advice on specific routes, for example to school or friends, your instructor will tailor the session to meet your needs.

There needs to be at least one child (under 16) and one adult on each session. Sessions are for up to 6 people from one family and at least one trainee must be an adult. Please be aware that where groups have very different ages or abilities, instructors need to pace training to suit the least able.
