Cake Confidence

Start cycling with cake confidence in 2018!

Last Saturday of every month at Cycle Heaven.

We are delighted to offer a free and fun scheme to support new cyclists at all stages of life into cycling.

Start Cycling Sessions

Our start cycling sessions over cake at Cafe 68 at Cycle Heaven (Hospital Fields Road, Fulford) include:

  • cycle chat, information and advice from one of our friendly team
  • free bike and child-carrying equipment loans for up to 3 weeks (£10 returnable deposit)
  • free 1:1, family or small group learn to ride or confidence training
  • ongoing support through a bike buddy
  • discounts – 10% off first bike purchases and 20% off accessories at Cycle Heaven if you choose to buy after borrowing a bike

You are welcome to come down with a friend, partner, family or pet!

You can borrow a bike and equipment just for the session or the full 3 weeks. There is a wide range of loan bikes and child-carrying equipment available to try and borrow for free – comfortable Ridgeback town and hybrid bikes, and, excitingly, electric bikes, as well as Thule child trailers and child seats and balance bikes. All bikes are fully equipped with lights, panniers and bells 🙂

The advice, loans, and training usually takes 1.5 hours and runs from 1:00 – 2.30pm and 2.30 – 4pm.

Email yorkbikebelles@gmail.com at least a week before to book your place.

Travel with Tots and Cycle Chat

The team will also be available in the cafe between 12 – 1 on the day of each Saturday session for:

  • Travel with tots tryouts – tryout bikes with front and back child seats, single and double trailers and balance bikes
  • Cycle Chat – advice on anything about York cycling

Just turn up for Cycle Chat but please email yorkbikebelles@gmail.com at least a week before to book a travel with tots tryout.

Next sessions are:

Saturday 27 October – fully booked

Saturday 24 November – spaces

Saturday 26 January – spaces

Hope to hear from you soon!
