Cycling the city of Leicester after CTC cycle training

Mrs Sodha hadn't ridden for several years when she took up adult cycle training with us, to gain confidence and get some exercise. After four sessions we lent her a bike and she joined in a ride around the city of Leicester last week.

Nirmalaben Sodha is just one of the ladies who have been given back her confidence to get back on a bike by a CTC Cycle Champions training programme.

Mrs Sodha has had a lifelong interest in cycling. She told us about growing up in East Africa, where her father imported bikes from Birmingham.  Now that she is over 60, she has come back to cycling for some exercise and a chat with friends in Cossington Park.

Pictured with her instructor Eliene Reis on the recent bike ride she said she was tired but jubilant, having travelled farther by bike than she had in many years.
