It's time to kick your cycling confidence up a gear!

Did you know that over 80% of your neighbours think cycling helps them relax and feel less stressed?

So why save a good bike ride for just the weekend? Put some joy back into your Monday to Friday and let us help you feel confident in commuting to work, university or school on two wheels.

Launching Monday 19th March, My Journey will be sharing expert advice, cycling initiatives and real stories of people in your neighbourhood who have cracked their cycling confidence issues – and how you can too!

We’ll show you how to perform a basic safety check on your bike, how to discover new cycling routes, what bikes are best for your everyday journeys and what you need to know when riding on busy roads.

Simply visit myjourneysouthampton.com/cyclesavvy to get all the resources under one roof – and feel confident about spinning into spring! 

Find your perfect bike match with us at our bike speed dating events

Why not trial some bikes for yourself to discover which type is best suited for you and the journeys you make every day?

Come and see us at AFC Totton on Wednesday 28th March, 10am - 3pm for some family fun this Easter holiday, and take on our turbo bike challenge to see how fast you can pedal against our pedometer in less than a minute!  

You can also find us at The Bargate on Saturday 7th April, 10am – 4pm - we'll have bike balance obstacle courses, freebies, and a perfect opportunity to take some wheels for a spin thanks to our friends at Cycle Experience and YoBike. So come and speak to our experts to help you find ‘the one’ this spring!
