A new cycling group aimed at getting adults back into the saddle is looking for volunteers.

In a joint initiative between Cherwell District Council, Go Active and Montgomery House Surgery in Coker Close, people are needed to encourage others to take up cycling to improve their health and activity levels.

Cherwell’s lead member for environment James Macnamara said: “We’re looking for people who are confident on a bike, patient and enthusiastic.”

A one-day training course will be provided.

“All we ask is that volunteers offer 30 minutes of their time for between once and four times a month.” He added: “You could make a big difference to people’s lives.”
