Project Description

Samantha and her daughters out for a ride on the Bristol to Bath Cycle Path.

Cycling

If you’re lucky enough to own a bike, not only does cycling get you from A to B, but it’s also a great form of low impact exercise and a fun activity you can do with friends or as a family. Getting out in the fresh air also has benefits for your mental health and wellbeing.

Apart from the initial cost of a bike, cycling is a great activity to enjoy for free at a time that suits you.

Better By Bike has lots of information about how to get cycling in Bristol including cycle training, local rides and buying a bike.

If you’re keen to get started or haven’t been out for a while, take a look at this helpful video https://www.cyclinguk.org/teachingadults

Or you can book a Learn to Ride session at the Bristol Family Cycling Centre. They provide cycle skills training, helping people of all ages and abilities to learn to ride a bike in a safe, traffic-free environment.

Bristol’s Cycling Sisters is a group of Muslim women offering free training to others in their community to get cycling. Email aumairah@bmcs.org.uk for more information.
