Life Cycle UK is a charity based in Bristol which believes that cycling can improve individual lives, local communities and the environment. If you haven’t cycled in a while but would like to give it a go, Life Cycle UK’s ‘return to cycling’ rides could be the perfect opportunity.

The rides will be running every 1st and 3rd Tuesday from July-October. They are designed to be short and gentle on traffic-free cycle paths with time to stop and enjoy some refreshments. All rides are led by a friendly ride leader and volunteers to support you. Bikes and eBikes available to borrow and cycle skills training beforehand if you’re feeling a bit rusty! All for free! Anne, previous returner to cycling says ‘I was expecting to be a lot more scared but ended up really enjoying it. The ride leader was very patient and helpful. I now have the confidence to start riding on my own’.

Life Cycle UK is also looking for volunteers to support our inclusive rides. If you are enthusiastic about cycling, enjoy helping others and can spare a few hours a month, get in touch to find out more.
