British Cycling today announced the launch of a new disability cycling hub in Bath which will host para-cycling coaching sessions delivered at the dedicated Odd Down closed road circuit.
The circuit is the only purpose built facility in the South region jointly funded by British Cycling and Bath & North East Somerset Council. Para-cycling sessions will take place monthly beginning on Saturday 25 April from 2:30 – 4pm. They will be led by British Cycling qualified coaches from local Go-Ride clubs.
British Cycling regional development manager for the south region, Mark Adams, said: "Thanks to the fantastic facility and dedicated volunteers we are able to make sure that more people are able to get involved and develop their cycling abilities.
"As the only purpose built closed road circuit in the South region it is an ideal venue for para-cycling sessions, allowing more riders with a disability to access dedicated coaching through the Go-Ride programme."
The sessions cost £4, with groups typically focusing on enhancing their bike handling skills and technical exercises.
Para-cycling coaching provides a fun and safe environment for people with a disability to experience cycling and celebrate participation in this hugely popular sport.
Regardless of ability, there is something for everyone from initial taster sessions through to competitive racing. For more information and to book your place, please visit the event page.
