Cycle for Health

Free, volunteer led cycle rides giving residents the opportunity to be more active. The weekly rides are particularly suitable for beginners and less confident riders.

Our current rides consist of;

Ilkeston: Meet at Straws Bridge Car Park every Monday at 6:30pm.

The led rides are for anyone aged 18 and over and bikes and helmets can be provided if needed. 


Balanceability is the UK's first and only accredited 'learn to cycle' scheme for children aged 2 and 1/2 to 6 years and specifically aimed to help develop confidence, spatial awareness and dynamic balance.

Balanceability benefits children by:

  • Physical improvement through the development of gross motor skills such as balance, co-ordination, agility, core strength and flexibility.
  • Gets children cycling much easier without the use of stabilisers which can be hindering and confusing to a child.
  • Improving children's confidence, self-esteem and resilience.
