Get Back on a Bike

Date and Location:

08 Oct 2019, 10:00 – 11:00

Haldon Forest Park - Forestry Commission, Bullers Hill, Kennford, Exeter EX6 7XR, UK

The Details:

These rides are designed as a reintroduction to cycling for those who haven't been on a bike for years. They take place on purpose-built, off-road tracks at Haldon forest, so there’s no traffic. There’s a café on site and we generally stop for coffee or tea (and cake!) after the ride.

  • Build your confidence on a bike
  • Develop your skills
  • Meet new people
  • Improve your fitness, and
  • Enjoy the benefits of being out in nature

"A fun way to get and stay fit in the great outdoors with fab company! Unlike many of the exercise classes I have attended, I really look forward to my weekly ride and have even bought my own bike!!" - Mary Ann Nestor

Cycling gets you outdoors into the fresh air, where the fabulous views nourish you. It is a great way to get your body moving, and to improve your physical fitness. More importantly, it's good fun, sociable and very supportive.

Your leader is Cathy Debenham, a cycling enthusiast and a qualified British Cycling Mountain Bike Leader.

Bring your own bike, ideally a mountain bike, but a hybrid is also ok, or hire one at Forest Cycle Hire on the Haldon site.

NB: The end time may vary depending on the fitness and size of the group.


Pay weekly: £10

These prices do not include bike hire or parking. Parking is £4 in school holidays, £3 outside them. Regular visitors can get a Discovery Card, which includes a year's parking (and plenty of discounts, including on cake), for £35.

If you are worried about joining a group, you can arrange an hour's 1-2-1 ride with Cathy first to build your confidence: £40.
