Cyclelyn is taking a break!

Stepping away for a while……

Bicester Bike Day

Bicester Bike Day tomorrow (8th July) on Pingle Field.  Please come and say hello.  Lots to see and do.  I’m there with my ‘Breeze’ hat on but please feel free to chat to my about anything cycling related.  Especially if you are a beginner, returner.  

Busier than Ever!!!!

I just felt the need to throw out a quick apology to those that have emailed me and not had an immediate reply. My days (all of them!) are pretty busy at the moment.  It’s the time when schools want their children trained or tested and parents want to prepare children for the summer holidays – and [...]

Bikeability Level 3

Had a fantastic opportunity to assist with a Level 3 session from Henry Box school in Witney.  Windrush really know their stuff.  Get in touch if you have any questions ranging from bike maintenance to all sorts of cycling education.  

New Job!

Just thought I’d let you know that I’m now employed by Oxfordshire County Council to deliver Bikeability and assist with their own Cycle Training Scheme. It’s great to be back in schools working with Years 5 & 6 children. Really looking forward to the rest of this year. I’m only part time, so [...]

Size really does matter! (when you’re learning to cycle).

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting Sam age 7.  Mum had managed to get hold of a 2nd hand Isla bike – gold dust!!  Pedals had been removed as instructed.  He could touch the ground both sides with flat feet and he could reach the brakes with ease.  Fantastic start!!  He was away so [...]

Note to Self

What a Banana I am.  I’ve only gone and booked next week to go and visit a friend in Suffolk.  So many enquiries this week for Ditch the Stabilisers, Learn to Ride and Bikeability.  Children and adults all dusting off the cobwebs and despairing at the rust and flat tyres. Nervously anticipating [...]


Merry Christmas to all of my wonderful 2015 clients.  From little people off of stabilisers to old guys venturing onto two wheels for the first time and mums wanting to keep up with their kids!! May you all have a wonderful Christmas and much jolly cycling in 2016!!
