Answers to some of our most frequently asked questions
Yes. We have all-abilities bikes available to try, including trikes, recumbents, two-seater bikes, hand-pedalled bikes and a wheelchair-accessible bike. These speciality bikes are available during our open sessions and for anyone who needs them during other sessions.
We also have two-wheeled bikes for adults and children, as well as balance bikes, trailers, bike seats, tag-alongs and a small tandem.

There is no charge for using our bikes but at extremely busy times people may need to share. If you do bring your own bike you are still welcome to try ours.
You are welcome to bring your own helmet but we have a wide selection to borrow while you are at the Centre.
Almost all of our sessions are drop in sessions – just turn up and ride. The exception is our schools/colleges cycling sessions and our Bikeability Level 1,2 and 3 courses. You also need to book on any specialist sports cycling coaching sessions. If you have any questions or want to make a booking please call or email us.
Depending on your child’s age we provide trailers, bike seats or tag-alongs. Just ask when you arrive and make payment and we can help you out.
We stay open unless the instructors think conditions are not conducive to cycling (thunder, ice, very heavy downpours). If we have to close the Centre for bad weather, we will put a notice on our Facebook page.
Yes, we will try to accommodate runners. The track is available during lunchtime during the week for individual runners (we charge £2 per person, which you can pay in cash at the office). We may be able to offer the whole track to running groups at other times. Please email or call us for a chat about times and prices.
