Yet more fantastic cycling news has emerged from the fine
county of Yorkshire! The legacy of the Tour de France 2014 is making itself
felt once more, with a new disability cycling hub due to be opened in York.
The dedicated hub will be formed as part of the pre-existing
York Sport Village, and will see para-cycling coaching sessions starting in
April.
The aim of the sessions is to create a safe and fun
environment for those with a disability to get the most out of cycling, focusing
on technical exercises and handling. There’ll be specially adapted equipment on
hand for all to use, and British Cycling-qualified coaches from the Go-Ride
club will be leading the sessions, so anyone who attends will be in safe hands.
British Cycling regional development
manager for Yorkshire, Peter Root, said: “Having a purpose built closed road
circuit and velodrome in York is a fantastic legacy from the Tour de France and
the launch of this disability cycling hub is a great example of the growing
number of opportunities for people with disabilities to develop their skills,
fitness and confidence with the Go-Ride programme.”
The people of Yorkshire are well known by now for their love
of all things two-wheeled, and the fact that they’re taking every possible step
to expand the reach of cycling across the population really is commendable.
In short: Go Yorkshire!
