Your Trust, Rochdale

‘A.S’ turned up every Sunday morning for the TfGM cycling sessions, despite her suffering from hemiplegic migraines. The sessions were a big confidence booster and helped to achieve a positive mood whilst working towards a common goal of learning to ride, in a supportive social setting.

“I spent my entire life not knowing how to ride a bike. Now at age 50 I have learned to ride…and have even bought my own bike.”



“After two sessions I managed to learn to ride a bike competently. After four sessions I managed a 6.5 mile bike ride to Moses Gate. This is an unbelievable achievement for me.”

“I started going to the men’s biking group about 6 months ago. The group has improved my riding skills so much. I was able to progress onto another project The Peak Connections leadership programme. My coaches were fantastic and patient. I now have the confidence to help lead bike groups thanks to WAVE Adventure who also helped me achieve the Mountain Bike Leader L2 course. I love helping others who are maybe less able or confident about riding to get on a push bike and try new things. It really does wonders for mental health and physical health.”

South Manchester Scouts

“We have noticed an increase in the number of scout troops participating in cycling activities and an increase in the number of cycling badges awarded.

"We have noticed a considerable uplift in the number of people commuting to scouts by bicycles. One of our Duke of Edinburgh award groups is planning our first ever DofE expedition by bicycle in 2023. “
