Community bike club seeks new members

A community bike club is looking for new members.

Wensleydale Bike Club is a non-profit community sports club hosting regular cycling training sessions provided by volunteer coaches and instructors from Stage 1 Cycles.

The club’s focuses on helping kids and families have fun and adventures on their bikes.

Organisers say there is a session to suit all abilities and aspirations.

The club runs three sessions every weekend throughout the season.

The sessions caters for beginners on balance bikes to confident riders on mountain bikes.

Children attend when they can with no annual membership fee, with riders paying when they attend.

The beginners class is based in Hawes, while other sessions operate off site on natural trails and bridleways around Wensleydale and Swaledale.

In addition, the club runs subsidised cycling away days and residential trips each school holiday.

This year, the children will be going to Scotland for the days. The club also offers free bike and helmet loans for children to use during sessions.
