Highcroft Community Centre (485 Slade Rd, Birmingham B23 7JG) hosts regular Friday morning adult learn-to-ride sessions and gentle introductory led rides in association with British Cycling – ‘Ride Active’.
All sessions are free and bikes, helmets, hi-viz, etc are provided for those who don’t have them. The learn-to-ride sessions are led by Peter, one of Birmingham’s most experienced cycle instructors, and start at 9:30am. They are ideal for anyone who can’t ride, hasn’t ridden for ages or just feels a bit unconfident.

The led rides are an ideal introduction to those not used to riding in the area.

Rides tend to be under five miles, go at a gentle pace and no one gets left behind. Peter, our qualified leader, is well known for the amount of encouragement and support that he gives riders.
