La Laguna encourages cycling with new courses
La Laguna council has organised the course “Learning to ride a bike” through the Bicycle School of Tenerife.
This course will be taught by specialised instructors, completely free of charge. Starting from scratch, the students will perform a series of activities during two hours over four Saturdays.
Those who register will learn to maintain balance, to brake, to turn, to know the state of the bike and the basic rules of circulation.
Participants (adults and youth) will be provided with bicycles and helmets. Children from six to eleven must bring their own bikes and helmets. Residents in the municipality of San Cristóbal de La Laguna will have preference.
Courses for adults (over 18 years old) will be from 8:30 to 10:30 hours (10 places); children from 6 to 11 years old, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (10 places) and young people from 12 to 17 years old, from 12:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. (10 places).
Acting councillor of citizen security of La Laguna, Jonathan Dominguez, said that one of the objectives of these courses is “to make visible more sustainable mobility and bicycle transport in the city.”
