Better by Bike - free Learn to Ride & Confidence Building sessions
Meet Caroline and Alice - the Cycling Officers who are running our new National Lottery funded ‘Better By Bike’ (BBB) initiative.
Working in partnership with local organisations, BBB aims to help to tackle the cost-of-living crisis by giving 4-6 free Learn to Ride and Confidence Building sessions for adults on low incomes and/or who are struggling with the cost of Public Transport to get around Cardiff. Following the sessions, individuals will be able to purchase a refurbished bike from us for a nominal sum of £10 (including helmet, lock and puncture repair kit) - so they're all ready to go and cycle safely and confidently!
1-hour sessions will run on Tuesdays and Fridays at Pedal Power HQ in Cardiff Caravan Park. Contact Alice and Caroline for more information on firstname.lastname@example.org
Working on this project is so rewarding, particularly now it's up and running and we're starting to see people really benefiting from it. We're already working with a number of people and even have our first 'graduate' - Hamed (pictured with Caroline and Alice) is the first participant to complete his training sessions with us and purchase his bike for just £10.
