Want the confidence to cycle? Help is on hand

There are many people out there who would like to cycle but don’t feel confident to use the road and in their own skills. To help with this, free one to one cycling confidence sessions are available until 27 July. The sessions typical take an hour and are provided by a qualified cycle instructor. They are tailored to the needs of the person taking part.

In Bristol, thousands of people have done these sessions and many now cycle to work, to shops or for other purposes. One person taking part said ‘I am now fully committed to cycling to work and I have enjoyed every minute so far. Thank you all!’

Local instructor Nick Warner said’ Taunton is a compact town and for many the town centre and work are only a couple of miles away, a perfect cycling distance. The cycling sessions build confidence and road awareness to make local journeys by bike’

If you would like to take advantage of this, email contact@thetacc.org.uk and they will be able to arrange a time to suit. They advise that book by 10 July.

The project is being funding by ‘Big Bike Revival’ , which is all about overcoming those little barriers and to help people feel more confident about cycling. Information at https://www.cyclinguk.org/bigbikerevival . This local project is being organised by Taunton Area Cycling Campaign.
