Beginners

Adult Beginners Classes

For many years we had held classes for adult beginners monthly during the summer in a Civic Centre car park. Most had learnt to ride from scratch in a single two hour session. For various reasons we had to discontinue these. Subsequently BikeAbility (Wales) offered classes at their base at the Dunvant RFC. However due to the Pandemic these are on hold. Check with Mike Cherry on 07584 044284 or 07968 109145 for the current sitation.

For general advice on getting started you should find this Bike-safety-guide helpful. It is not just about cycling safely.

If you can now ride a bike our Rides and Commutes page (near bottom) describes a variety of local rides including commutes from outlying districts to the centre of Swansea.
