Helping Local Residents To Commute By Bicycle

Outspoken Training, working in partnership with The University of Cambridge, have been busy delivering individual cycle skills sessions and led rides for the residents of the newest district of Cambridge, named Eddington.

Eddington is a mixed-use development of accommodation for students and post-graduates, private housing, research buildings and community facilities. It was designed with active travel in mind, offering some super cycle ways.

The sessions offer training to all ages to help build confidence and knowledge on how to cycle using the roads and cycling network. The training is tailored to the needs of the individual to help achieve their goal, whether that is learning to ride for the very first time or tackling the busy commuting routes around the city.

Nancy Minshull Beech, a National Standard Instructor has been delivering regular sessions and explained why she loves being involved:

“As a trainer, it was very satisfying to guide cyclists through the new development at Eddington and to include one of the off-road routes in to the University Sidgwick site. We have had a wonderful range of trainees, one of who was able to share knowledge on the public art around the new Eddington Country park.

The development incorporates a public arts strategy to showcase work that reflects the evolution of the North West Cambridge development, something close to Nancy’s heart, as she is involved in public art curating outside of cycle instructing.

“In our tour around the lake we were able to stop and climb into Fata Morgana's  "Japanese Tea" house and line up beside her "pixel wall"

What a great reason to get on the bike and enjoy a cycle ride!

Outspoken Training deliver free, 2-hour sessions for Eddington residents. Please visit our dedicated webpage for more information.
