Its been a busy week - Bikeability Level 1/2 in Pendle and Lancaster, Bikeability Level 3 in Pendle, 2 x Sofa to Saddle courses in Oswaldtwistle, Adult learn to ride / improvers in Preston and Burnley and Adult Training with Lancashire Police.
We also got some great feedback from Holy Saviour School in Pendle, well done team Pendle lead for the first time by Sam Peel - great job!!
"Just a quick email to say how fabulous the trainers from Go Velo were in school. The children have had a fantastic time and the results from the non riders has been amazing to say the least. Thank you to all of the team for being so proactive and using time so efficiently so that every child was able to get the most out of their training"

Here’s Carly Glover from Burnley Council’s Park’s Department. We met Carly when setting up our Dr Bike session in Townley Park last month. The Council have got some new electric bikes through the Access Fund Grant and wanted to make sure their staff used them safely. We set up some on road training for the team, but first taught Carly to ride a bike as she hadn’t learnt to ride earlier in her life! Well done to our instructors Gillian and Adrian who were involved in the training and to all those who took part today! Big thanks to Connecting East Lancashire for enabling this to happen FREE! ...
