Pedal St Helens steps up a gear
6:00am Friday 21st March 2014 in News
TWO more organised cycle rides take place this week as part of a campaign to get more people on their bikes.
Pedal St Helens is aiming to get people fit this summer with a series of events.
Rides take place on Sunday, March 23 from 9.30am at Bold Miners Neighbourhood Centre, Fleet Lane, Parr, and from 1pm at Sankey Valley Heritage Visitor Centre, Blackbrook Road.
A campaign spokeswoman said: “These rides are all fairly relaxed and only slightly taxing.
“They are suitable for all even if you haven't ridden in years.
“Bikes, helmets and high visibility jackets can be provided on a first come, first served basis.”
The campaign is designed to help people get active, build confidence and have fun.
There are three levels of Cycle for Health courses, starting with gentle rides for returning cyclists through to longer rides for more experienced cyclists.
The instructor-led cycle rides are carefully routed to help those who are feeling a bit rusty to build up their confidence.
There will also be a Cycle Into Spring open day at Taylor Park on Saturday, March 29, from 10am until 3pm with guided rides, BMX ramps, and a family cycling treasure hunt.
