A day out with a nervous cycler
“I had not been on a bike for over 30 years so I was very worried about riding one in a public area. I explained my concerns and Ginette took me to a little park for a practice ride, explained how it all worked. It turned out I wasn’t quite as bad as I thought! We were there for half an hour and it really put me at ease. I was enjoying it so much that I ended up doing the Richmond Park Ride which was fantastic. I had a brilliant time and felt really proud of myself as well.”
Montse ex-nervous rider from Barcelona.
