Elaine worked for Go Velo for a number of years and has moved on to an amazing job with a superb training company. We are sad to see her go, but lucky to still be able to call on her for her amazing advice and support. Thanks Elaine, good luck for the future! ... See MoreSee Less

Our first Big Bike Swap went well, here’s a few of the children who came away with bigger bikes and got a quick lesson with instructors before they rode away confidently! All bikes were checked by a qualified mechanics and the unclaimed bikes will be offered to local primary schools for children who do not have access to one. Many thanks to everyone for helping to make this little experiment work! Seeing these happy faces on new bikes, I reckon we will do it again! #recycling #bigbikesswao ... See MoreSee Less

Sustainability and Wellbeing for College Students

Working with Nelson and Colne College, Go Velo offers training in basic bike maintenance, route planning as well as cycle training and led rides.

About This Project

Working with Nelson and Colne College, Go Velo offers training in basic bike maintenance, route planning as well as cycle training and led rides.

 

One of the major benefits of cycle training is how it can encourage people to take up cycling, who might otherwise have thought it wasn’t for them.

 

Cycle training helps people overcome the barrier to imagining themselves cycling routinely by giving them the practical skills they need to do it confidently.

 

We supported the freshers’ fair at Nelson and Colne College, promoting cycling and providing easy-to-use maps for students and staff, to encourage them to cycle to college.

 

 

Working in Partnership

 

Go Velo’s partnership with Nelson and Colne College started on a small scale, but has grown into a wider project that includes tailored cycling courses and bike maintenance workshops but also loaning out bikes across the college’s two sites.

 

We’ve also worked with the college to develop safe cycling routes to and from its sites.

 

 

Wellbeing and Skills for Life

 

Go Velo also taught around 10 of our students how to ride a bike, which has had an amazing impact on their confidence and self-esteem but also given them a skill for life.”

 

The bigger picture is that cycling is good for sustainability. The environment benefits if more people choose cycling over motorised forms of transport. Along with the low energy requirements of cycling are its contributions to improving air quality and helping us move towards reduced carbon emissions.

 

But on a more localised, individual level, cycling can improve wellbeing as well as physical health.

 

“One 16 year old girl overcame so many barriers to participate in cycling. She couldn’t ride a bike and she was partially deaf. With the Go Velo team she was able to master riding a bike safely.”

 

 

Go Velo’s mission is to make cycling accessible for all, so that everyone can experience these benefits. And they’re benefits that can make a profound impact on people, and last a lifetime.
