Getting started: Just ride
It's like riding a bike, you never forget how.
1. Dust off your bike
Got an old bike? Fetch it out of storage. Or borrow a neighbour’s bike. Pump up the tyres, test the brakes and you’re good to go!
2. Find a quiet place
Find a quiet backstreet, local park or even your garden, anywhere you can safely wobble about a bit.
3. Just ride!
Within minutes, we reckon you’ll be having a blast!
