A better Medway

A Better Medway’s’ Active Medway Cycling Project utilises a new approach to encourage active travel and the enjoyment of cycling.

We offer community led rides that:

  • are pre-agreed and mapped routes
  • offer a supportive group environment
  • are up to 10 miles
  • encourage usage of cycle lanes
  • run during the weekdays
  • cater for adults over 18.

Our regular participants come from various cycling backgrounds, from those that have learnt to ride with A Better Medway and the ‘Learn2Ride’ project through to those that prefer a steadier pace of cycling.

One main focus of the cycling project has been to encourage more people back into cycling who may have not cycled for a while due to reasons such as a lack of confidence.

The rides run all year round and are led by community cycle leaders.

The ‘Learn2Ride’ program offers a coaching approach to adults to help understand balance and co-ordination of pedalling a bicycle.

The venues for the ‘Learn2Ride’ are flexible across Medway and offer a one to one bespoke approach to cycling at suitable locations.
