Redbridge cyclists called on to help others pedal into action
Redbridge cyclists are being called on to help others get on two wheels and catch the cycling bug.
As part of Sky Ride 2012, 10 rides are being planned in Redbridge this summer and British Cycling is looking for people in Redbridge to lead them.
A free training event is being held at Redbridge Cycling Centre, Forest Road, Hainault - an Olympic training venue - on April 14.
Cyclists will gain a free training qualification recognised by British Cycling, free kit, British Cycling membership and payment for leading the bike rides.
A British Cycling spokesman said: “We are jointly working to encourage more Redbridge residents to get into cycling against the backdrop of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.”

“Ride Leaders” will need to be available on Sundays, and the occasional Saturdays, into the autumn and be able to help on at least four local Sky Rides.
The Redbridge rides will take place in and close to the centre.
