Try It Out Tuesdays
A chance for nervous adults to try cycling together with the support of trained instructors
All 20+ bikes are available during these sessions - see them all in our Bicycle Gallery. Instructors are on hand to make sure the bike is set up for you and to give you an overview of how to use the bike.
What does it cost? £5 per session. Support workers/carers go free.
How do I pay? Pay on the day with your instructor.
Does my support worker need to stay? If you regularly need support then they should stay with you because they know you best. Support/carers ride for free and it's a great way to have fun together!
What do I need to bring? Helmets are provided, so you just need to dress appropriately for the weather! There's a handy cafe in the visitor centre for drinks and snacks.
What do I need to do? Book in advance by calling Milton Country Park on 01223 420060. If you don't get hold of someone straight away, please leave your contact details and mention that you wish to book a Try It Out Tuesday Session and you will get a return call. When you arrive for your session you will need to fill in a short form before you can get on a bike.
What if I'm not very confident? If you haven't cycled much before, or never cycled before, these bikes are a great way to build up your confidence! Things are more stable with three or four wheels and you can get used to the feel of peddling without having to worry about your balance. There are also bikes where someone else steers - so you can just focus on the feel of cycling and the wind in your hair!
What if there isn't a bike for me? We still recommend coming down and meeting our instructors, because we're trying to expand our bike fleet all the time. If you come down and tell us what you're looking for, we can add it to our wish list and make sure we're sourcing bikes that meet customer requirements.
Please note that group sessions can get busy. Numbers of bikes are limited and you may need to wait to try your chosen bike.
Accessibility Our bikes are made with disabled people in mind - so we should have a solution that meets your needs. Our Wheels for All trained instructors have all the info on how to adapt different bikes for different abilities.
The park has disabled parking bays with level access to the park itself. There is level access to the cafe counter and ground floor seating, and a ramp up to the viewing platform at the back of the visitor centre. Accessible toilets are located on the ground floor of the visitor centre. There is also a Changing Places toilet near the car park.
