It’s great to get some feedback from parents and to know our training is valued and good to hear Rosie feels confident riding on quiet roads. Glad we could help with the bike and helmet. Well done Nathan and Will.

“I just wanted to pass on my thanks to the team at Go Velo for the Bike Ability course held at my daughter's school, Wheatley Lane in Fence, on 8th & 9th November 2021. Particular thanks to Will and Nathan who were instructing on those days.

My daughter, Rosie, thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience! We had bought her a new bike for the occasion and Will spotted straight away that it hadn't been assembled properly and adjusted many things to make it safe for her. The helmet we were also recommended from said retailer was also deemed too big and unsafe her. Thankfully the Go Velo team had a bunch of helmets which she could borrow.

As for the course, she was showed how to maintain her bike and then were taken out on the roads of Fence... something she's never experienced before. She's come home saying she feels confident on the roads now, albeit quiet ones... and not forgetting the golden rule to always look behind her!

Again, massive thanks to Go Velo... you've been fantastic... providing life skills that no-one else could teach them!!

I'll keep an eye on your Facebook page, and we'll have a ride out to see and thank you personally at some of your future events.

Thanks again, Kim.”

With regret we are postponing today’s Big Bike Swap at the Steven Burke Sports Hub, Nelson. With a weather warning for rain, we really don’t want young riders to be put off and anyone in danger.
We NEVER cancel, so watch this space - we will be back in sunnier weather.

Every time I see this I have to point out that I have never managed to overtake a hippo on a bike. In fact I've never even come within visual range of one. So I'm pretty sure I'm going to lose that triathlon.

Means I can carry on piling the pounds either weight I'm going to lose 😂😂😂

It’s important our training is inclusive, including children who do not have their own bikes. This is why we have a huge fleet of bikes, suitable for all of our riders. If your child wants to take part but doesn’t have a bike, just let us know! Here’s some lovely feedback from Bowerhsm School from last week, where all the class took part.

I just wanted to send a little note to say how wonderful all your instructors were.
Ellie and Simon were very organised and made the week fly by.

Due to our school fleet being given out on long term loan- some children were going to go without the chance to take part this year- your team ensured that they could- for that- I cannot thank them enough.
