It’s never too late to start turning your wheels – beginner cycling for adults in 2015

It’s summer.  The sun is shining.  All your friends are bringing out their bicycles – but you – you never learned how to ride a bike.  Or maybe you learned as a child, but it’s been so long that you are afraid you have forgotten everything. Maybe you know someone who would like to hear about this event – IT’S NOT TOO LATE!

We invite you to participate in this session for adults who would like to learn to ride a bike

a) at a beginner level.

b) with a lack of experience 

In this session you will learn (or remember) how to keep your balance on a bike, how to shift gears, how to assess the road you are travelling on, and many little tricks and pieces of advice for everyday cycling.
