Phoenix Cycling Club joins in the Ciclovia fun

With only a few days to go, Ciclovia Belfast is delighted to announce yet another great addition to the activities along the Ciclovia Belfast Route.  Belfast’s biggest cycling clubs, Phoenix CC, will be taking part in this year’s Ciclovia Belfast event.

Members of the club will be on hand to offer advice and help with skills training and general bike handling skills. The activity will be mainly aimed at younger cyclists where instructors will showcase Cycling Ireland’s Sprocket Rocket scheme.  Sprocket Rocket is Cycling Ireland’s fun skills programme where children aged  5 to 12 are taught four FUNdamental cycling skills by qualified Sprocket Rocket Instructors. The Sprocket Rocket Programme was originally developed by BMX Australia. . The programme focuses on 4 main skills; Cornering, Pedalling, Braking and Balance. All participants are welcome to call by and get some advice. So, please come along and see the Phoenix CC crew in Donegall Square West (beside Belfast City Hall) as the team will be keen and willing to help.

No bike? No problem!  Don’t forget that you can pick up a bike from any of the Belfast Bikes docks across the City.  There are docks outside both Ciclovia Belfast hubs – Botanic Gardens and Belfast City Hall.  Just register, rent and join us for what is guaranteed to be lots of great fun.  Don’t forget that the cycle freeway is your freeway to ride whichever way you choice between 0930 – noon on Sunday 30th October.  It’s a great way to get out and about, meet new people and perhaps even pick up some new tips. Also make sure you are following our website or following the conversation on Facebook and Twitter @CicloviaBefast #CicloviaBelfast –  we hope to see you there.
