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.

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 tryouts
  • free bike and equipment loans for up to a month (£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!

There are a wide range of loan bikes available to try and borrow for free – child’s bikes, comfortable Ridgeback town and hybrid bikes, Thule child trailers and child seats, and, excitingly, electric bikes!

Just email and we’ll have a chat on the phone or at Cycle Heaven cafe. Over cake 🙂

Sessions usually take 1.5 hours and run from 1:00 – 2.30pm and 2.30 – 4pm.

The team will also be available in the cafe for cycle chat and friendly advice on anything cycling between 12 – 1pm on the day of each Saturday session.

Next sessions are:

Saturday 24 February – fully booked

Saturday 31 March – spaces

Saturday 28 April – spaces

Saturday 26 May – spaces

Saturday 30 June – spaces

Hope to hear from you soon!
