We are a free service that connects novice adult cyclists with experienced riders to build confidence cycling around the Warwickshire area.
Cycle Buddies are volunteers who know your local area well. They will meet you in your neighbourhood, accompany you on gentle bike rides and provide one-to-one support in a relaxed setting.
Cycle Buddies is a joint initiative between Clean Air Warwickshire; Cycleways Kenilworth, Leamington & Warwick; and Action 21. It is funded by Warwickshire County Council’s Green Shoots Community Climate Change Fund 2021.
Our aim is to get more people in Warwickshire cycling. We want people to rediscover the joy of riding and encourage them to swap some of their car journeys for cycle journeys.
“I’ve wanted to ride my bike more for a long time, as most of my journeys are local, but I’m not very confident riding on the road. I also don’t know the best routes to take and where to park my bike when I get there. I am so excited about Warwickshire Cycle Buddies, and I can’t wait to be paired with someone who can help me build my confidence cycling and show me the safest routes around the area.”
