We had an exciting cycling workshop on 11th of May.
Our partner Bike for Good provided free bikes and helmets,
taught very useful skills and led all participants on a small cycling trip.
Most of the participants were not starters.
But after a long time without practice, they wanted to gain more skills and get used to cycling again.
When all the participants arrived,
our cycling leaders from Bike for Good helped everyone
to adjust their seats and helmets and told them how to check a bike’s tires, frame and gears.
After everyone practiced a bit on the bikes,
the leaders brought everyone to Kelvingrove Park for skills practice.
The experienced leaders taught everyone how to stop quickly during emergencies,
how to change gears when going up and down,
how to observe what’s happening behind when cycling and how to control a bike, etc.
There were lots of techniques to learn and the participants seemed to have lots of fun on such a sunny day.
When everyone got used to the cycling skills, a small cycling trip started.
They cycled along the canal with beautiful views and fresh air.
Some Chinese students said they would have never noticed this green part of Glasgow
if they did not join us this time.
The workshop went well and everyone enjoyed cycling and sunshine. Many thanks to our partner Bike for Good!
