#TOTALBUDDIES is something new we’re looking to set up where people who’re either wanting to get a bike and start going out or already have a bike and are looking to get back out but both are too anxious about doing it. (SCROLL DOWN TO READ MORE ABOUT #TOTALBUDDIES)

We’ll have a list of people from all across the UK who’re trained in mental health but also keen bikers who know the local trails well and can therefore take you can a ride to help build your confidence.

After your confidence is built you may want to go out by yourself, join a shop/social ride or even help others who are in the same place you were.

If you’re trained in mental health and would like to be a #TotalBuddies please get in touch.

Why do you have to be trained in mental health to become a #TotalBuddies?

What we’re trying to do with #TotalBuddies’ is extremely important and I feel if people who’re anxious and would like help would feel more relaxed and confident going for a bike ride with someone who is trained in this area.

Also I would hate for something to happen while you’re out on your bike ride and the #TotalBuddies not have the correct training to be able to help in the appropriate way.

Maybe in the future we can open up for more buddies to join even without the training.

If you’re interested in either being a buddy or joining a buddy on a ride please let us know.
