If you know someone who would like to feel more confident in the saddle, a new local business may be able to help.

The Personal Cyclist (www.thepersonalcyclist.com) is a highly personalised service aiming to support everyone do and discover more by bike. Founder Kate Auld is British Cycling accredited and offers ride confidence coaching and guided rides for individuals and small groups, bespoke and at a pace to suit you. Her service starts at £45 and she is offering a limited number of introductory gift vouchers to those living within 5 miles of Harrogate in the lead up to Christmas; ideal if you want to do your bit for the planet & buy less stuff!

Founder Kate told us “Whether you want to try something new, challenge yourself to get fitter, or simply feel more confident leaving the car at home, cycling’s brilliant for your brain, your body- and the planet. I started The Personal Cyclist to encourage more people to enjoy life by bike; to take out the hassle, debunk a few myths and answer the questions I was too afraid to ask starting out. Everyone’s welcome.”
