Our cycling proficiency courses are led by a professional instructor, who will help you to become a better and safer cyclist!
You’ll learn basic bike handling skills in a safe, practical and judgement-free environment, allowing you to familiarise yourself with the best way to ride a bike.
Bikes and helmets are free to borrow from us, or you can use your own. You’ll need to wear trainers and clothing suitable for cycling – something that gives you freedom of movement and will keep you warm and dry if it’s raining, gloves if it’s cold.
We're committed to making sure all Do Something Different events are as accessible as possible for all students.
This event has no special accessibility requirements.
Any attendees with individual concerns about their accessibility are advised to contact Union Opportunities (Union.Opportunities@uea.ac.uk) for additional support.
What is Do Something Different?
The Do Something Different Programme is about trying a new activity and sparking your interests! We aim to encourage greater student interaction from across schools, liberations and courses that build your knowledge and skills as individuals. Perhaps you've been looking to try a new sport, attending a live music performance, or dabbling in an academic subject that piques your interest? We collate a wide variety of different activities happening across campus - from sports and games, to trips and extracurricular lectures!
There's always something happening every single day, and most events are absolutely free or cost very little! The best events will return during the Do Something Different Festival in Semester Two - a week-long celebration in which teaching is suspended for you to try a huge range of activities! Stay tuned for the full Festival programme coming soon!
