Why do I need a Bike Buddy?

If you're a fledgling cyclist, getting back into it or new to the area, a Bike Buddy can give you  confidence to get started by riding with you and helping you find a good route.


They can also help you find safe places to lock up, point out local bike shops and coffee stops, and answer your questions - you might even make a new friend!

"It has made a huge difference to my life. I feel so much more confident cycling having had a cycle buddy."

"having the cycle buddy meant that I could talk through any issues and could ease myself in to cycling gradually – meaning I was far more likely to stick with it."
What is a Bike Buddy?

Bike Buddies are experienced, friendly local cyclists who help others discover the freedom and joy of the bicycle by sharing their time and local knowledge.

We think of Bike Buddies as your local Cycle Superheros, who can help you find your bicycle wings!
