After successfully delivering their very first Disability Workshop back in December, British Cycling's Cycle Training team are now preparing the delivery of future workshops around the country.
The December workshop left the instructors and tutors feeling positive about the future opportunities and sessions the instructors could now offer. The positive feedback given reflected how beneficial the workshop was, with comments highlighting how the workshop helped to build confidence when delivering sessions.
The workshop also inspired instructors to think about the different ways in which they could expand their club and the cycling opportunities that they offer, as well as how the tutors input and experience put value onto the delivery of the course content.
The Disability Workshops are a great way for Cycle Training Instructors to develop their current skills and raise their awareness to help to build their confidence when delivering Bikeability sessions to riders with a disability.
The workshops not only deliver the theory behind the subject, but include a practical session where instructors can have firsthand experience of using adaptive bikes and utilising the knowledge of the tutors on the day.
A fleet of state of the art adaptive bikes and bike accessories will be at each Disability Workshop delivered courtesy of Quest88, who will also be present at our workshops to pass on their knowledge of the products that are available today. This extra touch to the workshop helps to bring it to life, showing how instructors can modify and adapt sessions to ultimately deliver inclusive cycle training and introduce cycling to those with a disability.
If you think that this workshop is something you wish to get involved in, please contact our friendly team on 0161 274 2129 for more information and to register your interest in the workshop.
