Cycle60 is best described as a couch-to-10-miles training programme. The aim of the programme is to get 100 inactive people in and around the Lincoln area cycling for at least 60 continuous minutes, or 10 miles, after eight weeks.
Following the backing of Ride Leaders, and a marketing campaign to make the public aware of the programme, Lincolnshire Sport will recruit 100 participants of working age who are not existing cyclists to join a new community of beginner cyclists.
Ride Leaders will be given a flexible structure of a progressive training programme aimed to move participants from 0 miles to 10 miles, or 60 minutes of constant cycling, at any pace. These training sessions are based on the same model as the popular Couch 2 5k jogging programme, but completed on a bike in and around the Lincoln area.
Both Ride Leaders and participants will be supported through this journey by Lincolnshire Sport and other Access Lincoln projects including Dr Bike and Try a Bike. The outcome of Cycle60 is to maximise participant’s skills, as well as opportunities and facilitation for long term change.
The first attachment is the participant registration form and the second is the route timetable for the programme.
All completed registration forms need to be emailed back to firstname.lastname@example.org
