The atmosphere was sparkling at the Ride Leicester and City Festivals. As the CTC’s contribution to the event, we wanted to bring something new to Leicester. The AirBag was perfect – fun, a little scary, a great spectacle.
It was lively on Humberstone Gate on Monday 18 August as people passing by gave it their best go and a few groups came down from around the city to practice whips and flips.
The CTC Cycling Champions Project has been supporting urban mountain biking groups in Leicester for several years, including offering events and training. The city now has a pool of people who are very well qualified to teach, and free monthly skills sessions: for all adults, women only, and family groups.
