Aaron Ure and Dean Foreman, the men behind Wheels in Motion trike classes which are held at the Avantidrome, recently received Local Hero of the Year Awards for their ongoing dedication as Coaches and Coordinators of the trike classes.
Aaron and Dean have been running the trike classes since October 2014 initially only coaching one class once a week. Now after 18 months of the trike programme running at the Avantidrome, there are 14 classes available each week and Aaron is even looking at getting a few triker’s to participate in the local cycling event The Rev this February, taking part in the 11km ride.
“Triking is a great alternative form of exercise which gives triker’s an increased sense of confidence and balance. It’s a great starting point for anyone at any age to build confidence on a bike, the social aspect is great too and it’s a hell of a lot of fun.” Aaron explains.
Aaron and Dean would like to see a greater age range using the trikes in the future and would thoroughly enjoy riding treks outside of the Avantidrome with a group of folk on a regular basis. The Coaches would also like to see a group develop their trike skills enough to be a part of the Special Olympics.
Triking is open to all age ranges and abilities. If you’re interested in triking and would like to book into a trike session, just pop into the Avantidrome in Cambridge to save you’re spot.
