FREE urban cycling skills sessions are being offered in Sheffield.
Sheffield Central MP Paul Blomfield took part in one of the city centre sessions last week which are being run by cycling co-operative Pedal Ready.
The MP, a keen cyclist, said: “I’ve been a cyclist all of my life but I learned a lot in the Pedal Ready session about how to ride in traffic in the city.
“Doing the cycling skills session has made me recognise the risks I was taking by getting things like my positioning on the road wrong. It will definitely make my cycling safer.
“As a car driver you’re not able to drive on the roads without training, but training for cyclists hasn’t always been available.”
