Ride for wellbeing
Cycling is good for your health and fitness and it is good for your mind too. Cycle Minded is all about better well-being through getting out and about. Being active outdoors helps you feel happier. You can achieve something new, feel better about yourself and meet other people.

Meet our ride leaders
I have been a group fitness instructor for 20 years and have seen the real benefits of what exercise can do for one’s physical and mental health.
It really doesn’t matter how many or few gears your bike has, all you need is two wheels and a ‘comfy’ saddle, and the world is your oyster!
My favourite mantra is “You don’t stop playing because you grow old, you grow old BECAUSE you stop playing”! My aim is to encourage as many people as possible to carry on playing.
Cycling is the perfect way to enjoy the fresh air and discover the great outdoors. With no glass window between yourself and the open road, your mind is more likely to be occupied by your surroundings rather than any negative thoughts..
Borrow a bike
We have bikes that you can borrow. We also have adaptive bikes if you have a disability.
Or you can bring your own bike!
Ride for free!
Cycle minded guided rides are fun and they're free*.
