We have some free cycling courses coming up soon to help adults and families gain confidence cycling on our city roads – is this something you would be interested in?
The courses will be delivered by Seiclo Clwyd Ltd, who deliver cycle training courses in primary schools across the county. The instructors are qualified national standards cycling instructors, as well as being trained first aiders who hold enhanced DBS certificates.
These courses are funded by Welsh Government’s Road Safety Revenue Grant.
What will I need to take part?
Firstly, you will need a roadworthy bike, and a cycling helmet is highly recommended. You should come prepared wearing appropriate clothing for the weather conditions, such as waterproofs and gloves.
Please also remember to bring water and some food/snacks to ensure good levels of concentration.
How does it work?
The courses will start with basic cycle handling away from traffic, progressing to quiet streets and then busier routes.
Each course is limited to 6 riders with courses taking place at 9.30am and 1.30pm on the following dates:
February – Monday 12, Tuesday 13, Wednesday 14, Thursday 15 and Friday 16
March – Monday 25, Tuesday 26, Wednesday 27 and Thursday 28
The start location of your course will depend on the day it takes place (see below):
Monday – Acton Park
Tuesday – Stansty
Wednesday – Rhosddu
Thursday – Gwersyllt
Friday – Hightown
