FREE cycling sessions are being offered to household in Inverness and Mid Ross to help more people make more journeys by bike.

The Velocity Café and Bicycle Workshop has been running a Go ByCycle project to promote greater bike use.

"Project workers have been carrying out sessions with parents and carers during the school day but can also offer family sessions during the October holidays covering basic bike maintenance, cycling skills, road skills and led rides," said Alice Masheter, one of the Go BiCycle project workers. "This might include learning how to carry out a bike check, practising cycling skills or trying a new route.

"Joolz [pictured top], is one parent who took up cycling during lockdown and wanted to develop her road skills especially with traffic increasing as lockdown restrictions eased.

The project is running a series of free cycling sessions.
