About us

The Family Cycling Centre has a large athletics track and other traffic free paths and training areas for a wide range of cycling activities.

The project is run for people of all ages – children and adults.

  • The sessions are great fun, as well as being mentally and physically stimulating
  • The benefits are huge – increased confidence and fitness; the opportunity to socialise and share an interest with others; a greater sense of well-being
  • The cycling sessions are run by qualified Bikeability instructors.
  • We’ve got a new Facebook page so feel free to check out what others have said and post your own photo’s!
