NoW's Cycling Connections and Bike Shack Projects

NoW's Bike Shack moves to a new home.

Networks of Wellbeing (NoW) are delighted to announce that, as you will read in the attached article, the Bike Shack will transfer to Gordon Rural Action (GRA) from 1st April.

This will place the Bike Shack in a town centre location and will allow it to develop a stronger presence in the town.

GRA will take over the Bike Shack’s successful servicing operation and will look at expanding the range of services offered - to include sales of new bikes, enhanced training initiatives, leasing of bikes and be a focus for cycling in the community area.

NoW will continue to deliver community-based cycling activities with led bike rides and a series of practical sessions to groups and individuals, such as bike maintenance for beginners, cycling sessions for beginners, and cycling talks and events.

If you know of anyone interested in any of these activities please ask them to contact Tim on 01466 793732 or email

NoW would like to thank all of our customers, staff and volunteers for building the Bike Shack to the successful operation that it has been and wish GRA every success in the next stage of the Bike Shack’s growth.


Cycling Connections - NoW

Through Cycling Connections NoW can offer a variety of community based cycling activities.  

Cycling Connections provides an opportunity for supporting people to regain confidence in themselves and in their abilities and, whist doing so, to provide a service to our community. 

The work done through Cycling Connections has included confidence building for people learning (or re-learning) how to ride a bike; working in secondary schools with young people at risk of exclusion; working with primary schools around bike-ability; talks to groups about our work and the benefits of cycling on mental as well as physical health; and volunteering opportunities for people wishing to regain confidence in their own abilities and to connect with their community.  

If you would like to talk to us about bike maintenance classes, 1:1 cycling confidence sessions, or led bike rides please contact Tim on 01466 793732, email or visit our Cycle NoW Facebook page here.
