‘Get, Set, Cycle’ – training courses available across Essex
The Safer Essex Roads Partnership is encouraging residents to ‘get cycle ready for the summer’ by improving their skills on two wheels.
Whether it’s for work, school or pleasure, cycling has many benefits – it’s convenient, environmentally friendly and good for health and fitness.
Working in partnership with Essex County Council, SERP provides one-to-one cycle confidence courses for those learning to ride a bicycle – or returning to the saddle after a period of absence.
The sessions, which are available across the county, are tailored to an individual’s level of experience and can be arranged at a time and location convenient to the participant.
SERP also offers a range of Bikeability courses, suitable for a variety of ages:
- Bikeability Transition provides children moving from primary to secondary school with route planning skills to help them cycle safely to their new school.
- Bikeability Ride provides a range of led rides on pre-determined, low traffic/traffic free routes, designed to boost confidence for people who are new to, or returning to, cycling.
- Bikeability Learn to Ride teaches children and adults to cycle.
- Bikeability Fix sessions show how to perform basic bike maintenance.
