Opinion: Why I’m swallowing my pride and going back to school


Life Cycle’s Communications Officer, Becky, tells us why she’s finally taking the plunge and booking some free, 1:1 cycle skills tuition.

Happy New Year! Nowadays I don’t normally ‘do’ New Year’s resolutions (tellingly, they have stayed the same every year). But here we are at the dawn of 2019 and I’ve decided to practice what I’ve been preaching since I started at Life Cycle: 

Love cycling? Pass in on!

Has the New Year got you reflecting on your career prospects? Those looking for rewarding part-time work have a fantastic opportunity to re-train and start a career in cycling with Life Cycle. If you want to be more active, love working outdoors and want to pass on skills, confidence and independence, then why not train with us? 

Nail that New Year’s resolution


If getting into cycling is one of your New Year’s resolutions, we're here to help! We have some exciting opportunities for people that are looking to improve their physical or mental wellbeing through cycling – and those aged 50+ who would like some relaxed support from one of our ‘Cycle Buddies’:

1.  Short rides for wellbeing

Improve your wellbeing in a relaxed, non-competitive environment with our ‘Return to Cycling’ rides.

‘Innovative’ Life Cycle wins Travel Award

Life Cycle was delighted to attend this year’s Travel Awards, hosted by Travelwest. Chief Executive Poppy was accompanied by Life Cycle fundraiser Becky and our lovely instructor/mechanic/ride leader Jacks.

We enjoyed a three course meal in the company of some of the leaders in sustainable business travel – including Rolls Royce, Eat Festivals, GKN Aerospace and Worle School Academy.  It was inspiring to hear about the strides being made by organisations across the West of England, enabling people to choose more active, healthy and sustainable ways of travelling.  

Re-start cycling, without the stress

If you’re looking to improve your physical and / or mental health in a relaxed, non-competitive environment, then our ‘Returning to Cycling’ rides could be just the thing for you! 

Starting Thursday 10th January, we’ll be running a programme of six, short bike rides, which will take place every Thursday until 14th February. Thanks to funding from The Henry Smith Charity and BUPA, there will be no charge for these rides.

Cycle once a week to fight climate change


For those of us that spend most of our time behind a desk, it can be great to get out and about in work time. This October it was a pleasure to step away from the computer screen to attend the Future Economy Network’s recent business breakfast, and meet a diverse range of people from organisations that are committed to achieving a greener future. We were there to discuss today’s hottest topic: Climate Change.
