Run by Cycling UK, the Big Bike Revival is all about getting people onto bikes in their local community. We're looking for volunteers and community groups who may be interested in trying cycling or being involved in helping to set up local community cycling groups. This group/groups could be set up within a community, or even within another group such as an already existing support group, women's only group, over 50's group, mental health support group. There are so many types of groups that could be formed. These groups would cycle at a pace that is comfortable to the group. They are not racing or competitive groups, but groups that help individuals gain confidence in their cycling and own personal confidence and self esteem and create new social networks within their community. The rides could be very short rides such as 3 miles, to much longer rides. We can offer plenty of guidance and support to help you along the way such as ride leader training, first aid and bike maintenance.
If you feel you would like to encourage more people to try cycling and/or gain confidence in riding their bikes, and getting small groups together that may meet weekly, monthly etc for a nice social ride then this may be for you.
