Events by Date:
13th, 14th, 15th Feb: Learn to Ride Cycle Training, MK Council – adults and children.
Bikeability Cycle Training
Bikeability training is a great way to boost your confidence on a bike, have fun, learn about road safety and improve your ability to perceive and respond to modern-day traffic situations.
With an increase in child and adult obesity in recent years, cycling is a great form of exercise that can be squeezed into everyday life by riding to school or work or the local shops. For many young people, it can be their first step towards independent travel. www.milton-keynes.gov.uk/highways-and-transport-hub
