Over 55s – Active Ageing Bristol

Book Now

Just for the record we don’t think 55 is ‘old’. We regularly see riders in their 60s and 70s come through the door for bike hire and to join us on our coaching courses.

However after meeting with Active Ageing Bristol we found out that this is typically the age that people tend to find they become less active. This is where we come in! From the 25th of April to 24th October 2019, we’re bringing you great value, weekly guided sessions for over 55s.

We will cover a combination of forest tracks and mountain bike trails around Ashton Court whilst learning a few basic bike handling skills to help riders feel more confident riding off road.

Most importantly it will be a regular structured session to get some exercise, breath some fresh air, get out of the city, have fun on a bike and meet like minded people.

And if you don’t have a suitable bike, don’t worry! You can hire one of our well spec’d Marin Bobcat Trail 5’s at a reduced rate of £5.

This could be a regular means of exercise for you, an introduction to off road cycling, or a way to connect with other active people of your age. Whatever your reasoning, you’re so welcome to join us. We provide the bike and helmet (if needed), you just book in and turn up!

These sessions run every Thursday (except August 8th – Balloon Fiesta) starting at 2pm and finishing at 3pm and are limited to 8 spaces per session. Booking is essential.

The cost is £7 per person.

If you need to hire a bike, please let us know your height either on the booking form, or by calling the shop – you can pay the £5 bike hire charge in store on the day.

Please have a look at the diary below and choose a session that most suits you. If you’d rather pay and book over the phone, call us on 0117 973 1298.
