Slough Borough Council are hosting a series of adult cycling lessons to encourage more people to get on and commute to work on a bike.

Working with their partners Cycle Experience, the council’s Better by team have organised lessons on Saturday morning and Tuesday Evenings. People across the borough now can either brush up on their skills or take their first step into the world of cycling.

Attendees will be provided with a bicycle to use during the two-hour sessions. The only thing those participating need to bring to the lessons at Salt Hill Park are helmets.

The Saturday sessions will run from 9am – 11am on:

• April 13

• May 11

• June 8

• July 6

The Tuesday sessions will run from 6pm to 8pm on:

• April 23

• May 21

• June 18

Project Manager Misha Byrne said: “The sessions are suitable for those who have never ventured onto two wheels or only have memories of wobbly short rides as a child, to those who just need a short refresher.

“The lessons are self-contained so you might only need to come along to one. However, there is the option of attending more if the rider feels they need more help.

“Cycling is not only good for getting traffic off the roads, but it can have positive medical affects for the rider like being happier, healthier and recent research stated people who regularly cycle have less time off work – it’s even good for businesses.

“With the evenings getting lighter it is the perfect time to get out and about and learn a new skill or brush up on a forgotten one.”
