Dadly Does It Bike Club
Backed by Unlimited Potential, this ‘Dads bike club’ have now set up a bike riding club and bike repair café.
They are affiliated with Cycling UK and have dads trained to National Standard in instructor training for the rides. Also they are City and Guilds trained for bicycle repair.
They offer free training on bike maintenance and leading bike rides to anyone in a ‘dad’ role i.e dad, step-dad, granddad, uncles and brothers.
All the family are welcome on the family bike rides and to bring their bikes for a free repair to the workshops. Children of all ages welcome.
So far, the dads have lead several bike rides around the loop-line which have been successful and are looking for more dads to be involved with the rides and the repair hub.
The rides are on average length 3-5 mile round trip, stopping regular for rests and offer free snacks.
If any fathers would like to be involved, in particularly anyone who is struggling, please get in touch.
The dads are currently looking at four potential sites for their container/garage to run the bike workshop from, and they are waiting to hear from this.
This will be updated as and when things happen.
See the groups facebook page for dates and information of the rides and also the repair hub cafe.
