Cycling sessions begin at Cosmeston


12 April 2017

A free cycling scheme began at Cosmeston last weekend, and aimed to get more Vale girls ‘on the move’.

Cycling at CosmestonMaking up part of the Council’s Girls on the Move scheme, the cycling session saw a number of young Vale girls bring their helmets and bikes along for the launch of the beginners’ course.

The course – taking place every Saturday in April between 10:00am – 12:00pm – is held in partnership with Welsh Cycling and Breeze Rides, and provides women and girls aged 10 and over with the opportunity to hone their riding skills in an enclosed area, before going on a ride around Cosmeston Park itself.

The sessions are said to be ideal for anyone wishing to improve their confidence on their bike, with mums and daughters encouraged to attend.

Anyone wanting to book a space at a session can contact the Council’s Sport and Play Development team on 01446 704808, or email Rachel Shepherd on

The Girls on the Move scheme was set up in order to encourage more girls to participate in sport more frequently, and has seen the Council host glowminton, running and dancing sessions in the past.
