Are you trying cycling for the first time? If so, there are ways you can prepare

Get equipped!

  • Got a bike? Follow our M-Check guidance to ensure your bike is fit to ride

  • Not got a bike and unsure whether to invest? borrow a bike from one of our Bike Libraries to give it a go without the commitment

  • Make sure you have got bike lights for the darker winter months and a lock for parking. Helmets are recommended but are ultimately personal choice. Don’t forget a coat for the rain!
