The first, West Midlands Cycle Hire skills sessions delivered by British Cycling at Banners Gate Dock, Sutton Park, Sutton Coldfield. Ideal for brushing up your cycling skills and awareness, these FREE short courses delivered by British Cycling Go Ride Community Coaches are suitable for those new to cycling or coming back to cycling after a break.

We will be using the West Midlands Cycle Hire bikes during the sessions and we will also cover how to access and use the scheme if you are new to us. Find out more about West Midlands Cycle Hire, including a map of all dock currently available here.
All activities will take place in the traffic-free environment of Sutton Park with the support of a British Cycling Go Ride Community Coach made available by the Active Travel Fund through the West Midlands Combined Authority.
