About the event
Low Pressure Cycle Rides With Campfire Lunch!
Has the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic affected your wellbeing or perhaps left you feeling isolated? Would you like to get out more, do some gentle exercise and socialise with a group of like-minded people? We may be able to help!
Under the Trees is running a series of low-pressure cycle rides for adults over the age of 18, with a social campfire lunch, prepared by the group in a peaceful woodland setting.
Take a Brake cycle rides are short cycling journeys with no time pressures (we get there when we get there!) using low-traffic roads and traffic-free paths where available.
Don’t have a bike, no way to transport a bike, or your bike is in need of repair? Don’t worry! You can borrow one of our bikes (we even have two e-bikes that you can try out). If your bike is in need of repair we can refer you to a local bike mechanic who can assist with access to the Scottish Government Cycle Repair Scheme. Take a Brake sessions are in blocks of 4.
Currently these are planned for Sundays but we may offer additional weekday sessions where there is a demand. The first session of each block is an introductory session where we will meet you and carry out a safety check on your bike, or let you try out ours to see which you prefer.
Sessions will begin at 11am at Tesco Redding, Colliary Road, Falkirk, FK2 9RA.
Session 1: 11am 20 November 2022 - Come and get your bike safety checked, have a coffee and a chat and try out our bikes for size if you don't have your own. Arrive any time between 11am and 12pm.
Session 2: 11am 27 November 2022 - Take a Brake Low-Pressure Ride & Lunch. We will set off at just after 11am and aim to return by approximately 4pm.
Session 3: 11am 4 December 2022 - Take a Brake Low-Pressure Ride & Lunch. We will set off at just after 11am and aim to return by approximately 4pm.
Session 4: 11 am 11 December 2022 - Take a Brake Low-Pressure Ride & Lunch (There will be an opportunity for a longer ride if the group chooses). We will set off at just after 11am and aim to return by approximately 4pm.
