CYCLING not only gets you fit, it can reduce stress and anxiety and lift the mood. It can also get you places and is good for the environment.

A second bike maintenance course initiated by Sussex Oakleaf is due to start in Hailsham on April 17.

The six week course (meeting once per week) will cover the basics of bike maintenance and include some road awareness and a short trip. Some second hand bikes shoud be there for participants to tinkle with as they learn new skills.

Organiser Maggie Harvey said: “This time there will be a few places available for the general public, so if you feel you could benefit from learning a new skill in a friendly, supportive group; and renewing your acquaintance with the joys of cycling, sign up for the course. You will need to complete a registration form.

“We had a great response from the request for donations of unwanted bikes last time – Thank you to those who donated.

“If anyone still has an old machine sitting unused, wanting a new home, we would be very grateful for it.”
