Carlisle Bike Confidence Sessions
October 27, 2023
Over the October Half Term break the Travel Actively team held cycle confidence sessions at Harraby Cycle Circuit together with their partner, Cycle Partnership.
The purpose of the sessions was to provide people with an opportunity to develop their cycling skills and confidence in a safe environment. Members of local communities and groups from Carlisle One Word Centre participated in the session.
The group spent time on the off-road cycle circuit learning fundamental skills and practicing road and traffic scenarios. Some of the more confident participants progressed onto the roads to further develop their road experiences and safety and put their skills into practice.
21 people engaged in the session gaining valuable cycling experience and developing their cycling ability and knowledge. The number of smiles and clear progression from participants will ensure that these new skills and increased confidence will enable them to travel actively in the future.
