The Low Carbon Community Project’s Cycling classes provide a great opportunity for our service users to learn cycling and become more green.

We have new bike lesson starting on the 20th of April at Bellahousten Park for 6 weeks and that if anyone is interested in joining could they please contact Lisa on 07531652787 or Lisa@ewfc.org.uk.

The first cycling course started in October 2020 and continued till mid December. Anna Glass from Drumchapel Bike hub, the trainer for all if the sessions, helped to train beginners and advanced participants. 2 ladies learned to cycle and more advanced participants became comfortable with cycling in the city. At the end of the 8 week course, 2 lucky participants received free bikes, so they could introduce cycling into their daily lives.

I would say it was a great opportunity learning a new skill and doing something meaningful during the current difficult Climate called Pandemic. I made new friends who were all lovely and inspiring. A big thank you to Ann for her patience and dedication and much greater thanks goes to yourself and Margaret for always being there and urging us on. I remember those times @Lisa baby-sitting the kids, so so lovely. A big thank you to all the Organisers ....It was a real empowerment.

I am very happy that I have learned a new skill. I used to think that cycling is difficult, but on the contrary, I found it very interesting. I made new friends. I got to know the city and its streets. I learned how to teach someone, to be patient and smile. This program broke the barrier of fear and isolation that I was living in during the emergence of the Corona virus in the first stage of its emergence. Cycling will help me free of movement , as well as using it as a daily sport, and it is also one of the mechanisms that preserve the environment and contribute to reducing carbon. Thank you!

I would like to say it was a great opportunity learning to cycle again after so many years ago. I found it very interesting. I meet new luvly and humble ladies from different countries. Thanks to Lisa and Co who baby sit my wee boy. Love you all.
