learntoride_headerThe Glasgow Community Cycling Network presents the Learn to Ride Extravaganza. The event will promote cycling clubs and charities in order that families and children at the event can find out where their nearest club or charity is.

The event will take place on Sunday 23 October from 12 to 4pm at Glasgow Caring City, 249 Govan Road, Glasgow G51 1HJ

Attendees will be able to sample the range of cycling services the city has to offer and take part in “Learn to Ride” activities. On the day there will be a variety of cycling related activities including the Scottish Bike Trials who will be putting on displays throughout the day.

Freewheel North will be bringing an assortment of bikes for the public to try out e.g.  conference bike, side by side tandem, tricycle tandem, double handcrank, child and adult tricycles, quadricycles – which is all free for the public!

You can also bring your own bike and receive a free Dr Bike safety check: the mechanic’s will check over your bike, tightening up any loose nuts and bolts, and advise you if your bike needs any other parts replaced.

There will also be a skill track area and a practice area for everyone to practice on which is also free. And for those new to cycling there will be a series of Learn to Ride sessions aimed at different age groups although booking in advance is required.

The Learn to Ride event is for all ages and the areas for learning will be indoors so no need to worry about the weather while learning to ride a bike!! Bikes will be provided in the learn to ride areas and refreshments will be available to purchase on the day.
