I’ve been cycling for a number of years, either riding to school or with my family. I had high hopes of the R-evolution Cycling Academy and after the first couple of sessions it has definitely exceeded my expectations.
Everyone in the group is friendly and approachable. We have all been riding road bikes at Ennerdale Cycle Track and learning how to ride together as a group and building fitness – it really makes you appreciate how useful it is to work together as a team.
In cycling, you often ride or compete as an individual so it’s great to ride with like-minded individuals.
The coaches and volunteers are knowledgeable and approachable and get the best out of the group in every session. It’s great to be able to ride with and learn from such experienced cyclists.
We learn about different aspects of cycling (i.e. riding safely in a group, communication, positioning on the road, changing position, changing pace etc).
I’m excited to take part in future sessions to gain more experience and try out new skills.
