I hadn’t ridden a bike since I was about 14 years old.  I was excited but a little hesitant when Trina suggested I have a cycling lesson as part of my Personal Training package!  But, with her gentle encouragement, patience and clear and concise explanations of how to use the gears I found it was actually great fun!   I even rode up and down hills and went on a bit of gravelly ground without falling off!

I can’t believe I’m saying this but I might even buy a bike next and head off to the park to feel the wind in my hair again.  The whole experience was really pretty liberating and a real accomplishment!
