Cycling training on offer

Cycle hire scheme

Cyclists in North Liverpool are being given the chance for some free training at a special event.

It will be staged at Anfield Stadium (the Eights Lounge) on Monday 8 February (11.30am to 1.30pm).

At the event the North Liverpool Cycle Project and partners will be on hand to explain about the project and the opportunities it offers. It is run by the Breckfield and North Everton Neighbourhood Council (BNENC) who recently secured, through the North Liverpool Cycle Club, an award of £9,945 from Sport England to develop cycling in the area.

There will be an opportunity for anybody over 14-years-old to take advantage of free accredited training including: Cycle Leader, Cycle Maintenance, First Aid and Health and Safety.

Alan Donnelly from BNENC, said: “Cycling is an excellent opportunity for positive change.”

Councillor Tim Beaumont, Mayoral Lead for Wellbeing, said: “This is a great chance for anybody interested in cycling to get involved and take advantage of the free training on offer.

“We have fully supported the BNENC in their cycling project which, with the support of the funding from Sport England, will go from strength to strength.”
