Cycling UK launches new scheme in Manc - BikeBiz
Cycling UK is today launching a volunteering drive across Greater Manchester

At the end of 2017, H3, a charity supporting those experiencing homelessness in Stockport, was able to restart its cycle rides thanks to a volunteer appeal by Cycling UK.

By reaching out to new ride leaders, H3 could continue taking vulnerable service users out on bike rides, increasing their confidence, limiting feelings of isolation and opening up new opportunities.

One of the volunteers now leading rides for H3 Margaret Mulowska said: “I think what's so great about cycling is it's something anyone can do, as long as you are mindful of the pace and not excluding anyone. You see so much more when you're out on a bike; there's that sense of adventure, and getting that vitamin D.

“It's brilliant to watch people surprise themselves and share a conversation out riding. There's so much to be gained. I can’t think of a reason not to. It's great to meet people who are as passionate about cycling as me."

Cycling UK’s volunteer network support manager Sarah Merrington added: “We know there are Cycling UK supporters and members of the public who are interested in volunteering in cycling, but they don’t know how. We want to raise their awareness of the amazing local activities they can get involved with.

“The new recruitment campaign running in Manchester is just the start; there are lots of exciting roles where volunteers can have a massive impact on worthy local projects without giving a huge time commitment - unless they want to of course!

“If you have ever thought about doing something like this, please get in touch and find out how you can get involved.”
