News : Free wheeling
The weather may be getting colder but there are still plenty of opportunities to ride and to learn how to be a better cyclist, with free training sessions, and Women on Wheels rides taking place right through the winter across the Lancaster district.
Bikes can be hired, free of charge, for those who donít have their own, or are thinking of buying one but want to give cycling a try first.
Free training sessions for individuals and small groups run throughout the year. These are tailored to suit your needs, whether you're a complete beginner, a family looking to improve your riding skills or an existing cyclist looking to gain confidence on the roads.
