While there are a number of sport centres and community youth centres in Barnet, we haven't found any that is quite like our project, which aims to combine cycling training as sports and social get-togethers in a successful way. Barnet has a high obesity rate and it is rising, especially amongst children; 17.5% of year 6 pupils are classed as obese and spend less than 3 hours in school sport. Rate of smoking is also higher than the average in England; 17% of adults are smokers. We have conducted a survey in Barnet to 300 people including our students at Axis Tuition Centres. We have found that the vast majority of our survey participants (ages 14-25) are inactive, doing less than 4 hours of sport per week. We have also found that while there is definitely demand for a sports related activity, most of the participants said that they would only consider such an activity if it was "fun", "engaging" and "offered a social aspect" which brought us here to plan an activity responding needs.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Barnet people need regular sports and more social platforms where they can enjoy and achieve as a family. This project is an option for people who cannot afford paying for bicycles and training. The participants will come and complete the sessions in their age group or as a family once per week. Each participant will take a training session of a minimum of one hour before independent cycling and then they can cycle in safe locations until they are fully ready to ride on streets. The sessions will be on every Saturday. We will employ an experienced and qualified instructor who will be in charge of the sessions with two other voluntary assistants. We believe that the project will be very Interactive; Social; Rewarding; Enjoyable; and Personalised.
