The University of Dundee’s Institute of Sport and Exercise (ISE) is piloting a new physical activity cycling project for Active Living (AL) and Senior members.
Currently, eight senior and AL members are taking part in weekly coaching sessions with a Cycling Scotland tutor. Six of the eight haven’t picked up a bike in two years, while the other two haven’t cycled for more than 50 years.
Members will receive 6 weeks of cycle training and support from a Cycling Scotland tutor. The training will give members the skills and confidence to enable them to increase their cycling activity including commuting to ISE.
Who the new cycling project is for:
- active living and senior members
- members who would like to commute to ISE & increase their cycling physical activity
- equipment provided or bring your own bike & helmet
What the project entails:
6 weeks of training:
7 Nov – 12 Dec 2017
Full support and coaching delivered by qualified Cycling Scotland Tutor
More dates coming for 2018
6 out of the 8 participants in the first coaching group have not cycled for more than 2 years with two participants not having been on their bike for 50 years!
In just a few years, the University has been recognised as the Cycle Friendly Campus of the Year (2016-17).
This award celebrates the University as the first campus in Scotland to achieved Cycle Friendly status through its five-year strategy to build a sustainable transport hub.
