FOR those who have never taken to two wheels, the old adage ‘as easy as riding a bike’ doesn’t necessarily ring true.
But help is at hand this Easter for adults who would like to get pedalling.
Three training courses are being run for adults who want to learn how to ride a bike and develop their confidence in cycling.
