Cake Confidence – Take up cycling

With a 97% success rate, you’re pretty much guaranteed to get into cycling on our friendly and fun start cycling with Cake Confidence scheme. Hire bikes and equipment can be provided. New courses start every month on a Saturday in a cafe, over cake if you wish!

Nature Time Walks and Rides – Relax, feel well, and discover nature

As part of a small group, you’ll feel wonderful after being guided around nature in some of York’s most beautiful green routes and spaces on our Nature Time experiences. The Walks and Rides take place at the evening or weekend.

Cycling Without Age Nature Rides – Enjoy nature and the community again

These Rides are especially suited to the older community with restricted mobility. You’ll enjoy a feeling of freedom, the companionship of our friendly volunteers, and contact with nature on a Ride around York’s best parks and green spaces. Rides usually take place on Thursdays and Saturdays.

Walking Book Group – Walk and talk about books

You’ll enjoy socialising on our Walking Book Group, with short walks from the centre of York, ending in a café. Walks take place on the third Thursday of each month.
