Sunday 23 October 2016

Event Description

Learn to Ride Extravaganza
23rd October 12pm – 4pm
249 Govan Road
Glasgow
G51 1HJ
 
On Sunday 23rd of October the GCCN will gather in “The Glasgow Caring City” warehouse in Govan where attendees will be able to sample the range of cycling services the city has to offer and take part in “Learn to Ride” activities. 
 On the day there will be a variety of cycling related activities including the Scottish Bike Trials who will be putting on displays throughout the day.  Freewheel North will be bringing an assortment of bikes for the public to try out e.g.  conference bike, side by side tandem, tricycle tandem, double handcrank, child and adult tricycles, quadricycles – which is all free for the public!
 You can also bring your own bike and receive a free Dr Bike safety check: the mechanic’s will check over your bike, tightening up any loose nuts and bolts, and advise you if your bike needs any other parts replaced.
 There will also be a skill track area and a practice area for everyone to practice on which is also free.
 
For those new to cycling there will be a series of Learn to Ride sessions aimed at different age groups:
  • age 2 years old – 5 years old by Play on Pedals
  • age 6 years old -12 years old lessons provided by South West Community Cycles 
  • age 12 years old – 40 years old lessons provided by The Glasgow Bike Station
