Absolutely honoured to be involved, leading the Brierfield Bike Ride yesterday.

A lovely ride from Brierfield to the Steven Burke Sports Hub where we stopped for refreshments before heading back, taking in all the beautiful scenery and infrastructure already in place along the route.

This is amazing initiative that really will help pave the way for increased Active Travel in the area of Pendle.

What a brilliant day yesterday down at Pendle Panthers summer jam.

Sooooo many cycling activities going on including our Try-a-bike and Dr Bike service.

Our very own obscure and inclusive bikes were definitely a hit!!!

Thanks again for having us, such an awesome event to be a part of and such a worthy cause raising money for Sarcoma UK in memory of Rob Zed Metcalf.

If anyone doesn't know the name, Rob was a very inspirational person who openly talked about his cancer journey and many around the world followed his journey #walkingwithsarcoma, so much so that while we were at the pump track, a mountaineer shared an image from the summit of Everest of an image of Rob he had taken with him.

We are so very pleased to be involved with this year's summer jam where we will be there hosting:-

Try-a-bike - if your new to cycling and want to see what may be right for you or if you fancy trying something different we have an array of bikes and sizes for you to try, heck we even have a tandem and a penny farthing if your feeling nostalgic.

Dr Bike - why not come and get minor faults fixed by our very own Go Velo cycle mechanic.

You'd be mad to miss it.

There's so much more going, excellent food, music performances raffles, lots of different cycling activities and prizes to be won.

It's a fundraising event not to be missed!

This project aims to increase participation on the local canal which runs from Barrowford locks to Eanam Wharf Blackburn.

Our role is to boost confidence and skill so more people feel confident to cycle on this wonderful stretch of canal.

Today we commenced the project with a group of local ladies. The aim is to travel to the UCLAN campus (Victoria Mill) along the idyllic stretch of the canal from the Steven Burke Sports Hub.

๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰Congratulations Michael ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

At the beginning of March we loaned out our hand cycle to Michael who had taken on a challenge to cycle and push the distance of 100km during March to support the amazing charity BACKUP after a cycling injury left him paralysed.

Yesterday Michael cycled his final lap around the Steven Burke Sports Hub accompanied by our team.

Michael absolutely smashed his original target (within the first 2 weeks) and finished the challenge having completed a whopping 200km.

If you would like to make a donation, please do.
Charities like BACKUP do so much for individuals and families who have experienced a spinal cord injury, an injury that can have a massive life changing impact.
