Cycle South Dartmoor is supporting the BIG BIKE REVIVAL because we as a project group want to make cycling accessible to everyone, to encourage people who don’t cycle to have a go and to encourage people to cycle more often. As our aim is to establish safe, accessible cycle paths for users of all ages and abilities, that connect Dartmoor and rural communities.
This FREE ‘Learn How to Fix & Maintain Your Bike’ workshop and other BIG BIKE REVIVAL events throughout the coming summer are possible through the funding and support from:
