Get Cycling CBS can give you the boost you need
We can help you build up your knowledge, confidence and practical skills to enable you to get cycling, love cycling and keep cycling!
Do you want to begin or continue cycling? Whether you’re doing so to improve your wellbeing or fitness, to reduce your carbon footprint, or for any other reason, our standard BikeBoost sessions could be just what you’re looking for.
Are you are searching for educational and fun physical activity sessions to promote the numerous benefits that cycling provides? Look no further, BikeBoost at School can be fully customised to suit your class or group.
Could your workplace benefit from a bike loan scheme and support sessions to encourage a commute to work that’s more sustainable, healthier and a great deal more fun? BikeBoost at Work can do just that.
Individuals can come along to informative and fun sessions led by an experienced member of the Get Cycling CBS team. Perhaps you’re considering getting a bike, or updating what you already have? Maybe you’ve never cycled before, or it’s been a long time since your bike ventured outside the shed? We appreciate that the world of bikes and cycling, wonderful though it is, can be daunting. There’s a lot to consider: the kit, with seemingly endless cycle and accessory options to choose from; the maintenance required; as well as the importance and practicalities of safe riding. If you don’t know your hybrids from your hardtails, or whether a commute-friendly or cargo cycle really can help you ditch the second car, these sessions are here to help.
We provide: advice without the bamboozling bike jargon; an opportunity to test ride various types of cycle with no sales pressure; an introduction to basic maintenance and repairs; and the chance to learn practical riding skills. Get in touch to book a BikeBoost session for you, your family and friends, or even to arrange a bespoke session for your community, club or interest group.
BikeBoost at School
A day or series of BikeBoost sessions at school! We can visit your school, bringing a range of cycles appropriate for the age and abilities of the participants and would encourage those with their own bikes to bring them along too. Our BikeBoost at School sessions can be fully adapted to suit your requirements and are popular with special and mainstream schools, as well as after school clubs and holiday activity providers. These sessions can also be tailored to suit other educational groups – great for colleges, universities or even U3A groups – or to help your local Brownie, Guide or Scout groups to achieve cycling badges!
We provide: an experienced team member(s) to work with a single class, group or an entire school; assembly or classroom-style presentations, interactive outdoor workshops and practical basic maintenance and riding skill sessions (including Bikeability training if required); as well as specially developed materials to deliver an educational, engaging and inclusive experience.
BikeBoost at Work
By promoting the numerous health and economic benefits, and incentivising sustainable travel, we encourage and support new and existing leisure cyclists to try cycling to work through our workplace BikeBoost programme. If you or your colleagues need solutions to the common barriers facing those considering a commute by cycle, we can help. You can get to grips with practical riding skills and basic maintenance and repairs, before loaning a lovely new bike and the relevant accessories to suit your commute. There’s nothing to lose: you get to try out commuting to work and if you love it, which many people find they do, you can purchase the bike and kit you borrowed at a very attractive price!
We provide: a bike loan period of up to four weeks; practical training to teach and encourage safe riding; maintenance support for participants; advice for workplaces looking for relevant funding to develop cycling facilities; tips on how to sustain a commute culture; and set up of online platforms or competitions to encourage a bit of friendly workplace rivalry.
