OLDER North Tynesiders are being encouraged to get back in the saddle.
The Parks Sports Centre in North Shields is hosting free cycling sessions for people aged 50 and over every Wednesday.
The sessions, starting this week, are part of a month-long campaign by North Tyneside Council to help borough residents regain confidence on their bikes and improve their fitness.
They will run from 10am to 11am throughout June.
Bicycles and helmets can be provided. For details, ring (0191) 643 7447.
