Ride Active provides fun, social cycling practice activities in safe, secure environments in Northfield and surrounding areas. Please click on the links below to book your free places.
Ride Active is a partnership between Cycle South Brum, British Cycling and Big Birmingham Bikes. The meeting point is Victoria Common, Northfield.
These one hour sessions allow you to practice and improve your skills, cycle in a group and meet other cyclists.
If you are a complete beginner, we recommend you book onto a Level 1 Learn to Ride course first, but as long as you can pedal your bike, Ride Active is a great chance to put in some practice and build your confidence.
- fun circuits
- traffic free laps
- activities to develop basic cycling skills
- off-road led rides
- social activities
- short on-road led rides.
Ride Active sessions will incorporate a Led Ride which anyone who wants to improve their confidence or abilities is welcome to take part in.
Can I borrow a bike?
We have a limited number of bikes and trailers for hire. You will be able to reserve a bike when you book. Bikes can be collected on the day. If you have your own bike you are welcome to bring it.
We have helmets to borrow for these events, subject to availability. If you do not have a helmet and you would like to borrow one for the ride you are attending, you can indicate this when you book. If you have your own helmet, you are welcome to bring it.
Is there a cost for attending?
No, it is free.
