Cycling for Health sessions in Reading

Cycling UK, in partnership with Reading Borough Council, run weekly Cycling for Health sessions at the velodrome in Palmer Park. We went along to see the successes the sessions are having.

Cycling UK, in partnership with Reading Borough Council, run weekly Cycling for Health sessions at the velodrome in Palmer Park to encourage people to take up cycling for exercise and to promote cycling as transportation.

The sessions are available to cyclists of varying ability. Eileen, a new cyclist and participant in Cycling for Health, had never ridden a bicycle before. “Last week was the first time I had heard about the cycling sessions here,” said Eileen. “I came with my grandchildren to see their Aunt Kathy riding a bicycle and I took part last week – I've never been on a bicycle in my life before – and I feel quite proud of myself, so I’ve come back again”.

Kathy has been coming to Cycling for Health for a year and half. “I’m very glad I found Cycling for Health,” Kathy said. “It’s really invigorating to come out on a Monday morning and do a few laps around the track. I would encourage everyone that’s interested to come give it a go”.

Cycling for Health takes place every Monday morning from 11:30 to 12:30 at the velodrome at Palmer Park.

I would encourage everyone that's interested to come give it a go.
