First cycling session with Bike Right!

We kicked off the first of six weeks of cycling this evening with glorious sunshine and a handful of Chewits – just the right concoction to keep our energy levels up!

We met at 4:15pm at Sidney Street Cafe to bring the bikes over to the Sheung Lok centre. This proved slightly more difficult than expected as the bikes outnumbered the people! Thankfully, Claire used all of her biking experience to carefully carry two bikes at the one time. A mighty feat it was. Helmets off to you, Claire!

After snacking on some treats at Sheung Lok and doing our introductions, we all headed over to the grounds of Medlock Primary School to learn the basics of cycling. Snigger all you like but even those of us who have been cycling for years struggled to pull off an emergency stop and swerve!

Not everyone was as confident with one-handed cycling or turning corners at the beginning but by the end of the session, we all felt capable of hitting the road next week. So confident even that some of us tried our hand at, well, no-handed cycling… It’s safe to say we won’t be attempting that on the roads any time soon!

Fun in the sun?!

Well, the sun wasn’t shinning that brightly on our trip to Crosby Beach today and it was quite blustery at times (which made playing Volleyball that extra bit challenging/funny) but the experience warmed our hearts. Together we enjoyed trying out the outdoor exercise equipment, some games on the beach and some sun health awareness discussion. Not so much sun but definitely lots of fun!
