Give it a Spin - Live!@New Scene, Chester

Give it a spin is an inclusive cycling opportunity operating through Live! Cheshire and based at New Scene Youth Centre in Chester. The centre is a CTC affiliated, group that provides people of all abilities with the chance to enjoy cycling in a supportive and comfortable setting, It is easy to take part and you can just come along on a drop in basis. The sessional staff will be happy to discuss any needs you or the person you care for may have, match you with a potentially suitable cycle and then you can try it out. If you do not feel that cycle is suitable, then you will be able to try another. We are working to enable cycling and will try out hardest to match people to a bike they can use.

The current situation is that there is more capacity in the afternoon session and calling ahead to inform the centre of group attendance is recommended.

We are looking at the possibility of running extra sessions so if you are involved in or know of a group or individual that could benefit from being able to access the cycles on a different day, please contact us with further details.

The current co-ordinator for the sessions is Mike Jones and he is at New Scene on Mondays. However it is best to contact the Live! staff in the first instance and let them know: your name, a contact number or email, how many participants, times that you wish to come along and any additional, alternative days that may be useful for you or your group so they can think about future provision.
