Sessions are now finished.

In the last three years, we have offered sessions from learn-to-ride and family rides to mountain biking and maintenance sessions.  We have also provided training and essential items for groups and leaders, including First Aid, Cycling Instructor and Mountain Bike Leader courses.  All events and courses have been free to nearly 5000 people.  Cycle Champions in Leicester is coordinated by CTC Cycling Development Officer Elizabeth Barner.  It was funded via the Local Sustainable Transport Fund (Department for Transport)
