Visit our new RideWise community cycle centres

We love cycling and we think we can help you and your family love it too. Our four community pop up cycle centres run regular free rides and cycle training between March and October as well as some winter cycling support events through the late autumn and winter times.

Our pop up cycle centres are based at:

Arkwright Meadows Community Gardens, The Meadows
on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month

Lenton Abbey Park, Derby Road
on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month

Bulwell Forest Recreation Ground, off Hucknall Road
on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month

King Edward Park, Sneinton
on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month

There’s a regular weekly programme across the city, which includes short guided rides, cycle instruction and special events such as Dr. Bikes, led walks and bike maintenance sessions that everyone will enjoy. And, what’s even better is that the project is supported by Nottingham City Council, which means that if you live in Nottingham, it’s completely free!

Cycle Training and Guided Rides

Standard times as follows for a Saturday morning (please see above for confirmation of the Saturdays on which each centre runs):

  • Beginners cycling lesson: 9am – 10am
