Glasgow Eco Trust are running FREE Learn to Cycle sessions from 12-3pm in the outside hall at Scotstoun Leisure Centre.

Our Learn to Cycle sessions provide a 30 minute 1-on-1 learning experience for people new to cycling or returning after an absence.

At a session, you will be supported to have fun learning to ride a bike. The sessions are delivered by fully trained and experienced instructors. The emphasis is on fun and the sessions are delivered at a pace to suit you.

Each session will have up to 12 available time slots and you need to book in advance. Currently you can only book a maximum of 2 time slots for the same person.

The 30 minutes time slots are:

  • 12.10 - 12.40pm
  • 12.50 - 1.20pm
  • 1.30 - 2.00pm
  • 2.10 - 2.40pm

Bikes and helmets are provided. If you have your own bike and helmet please ask us about bringing them along on the day. Sessions are aimed at anyone over the age of 12. Under 16s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
