Ursula Harries, Cycling Instructor
I’ve been cycling regularly since my teenage years, when I was inspired by escaping to Norfolk with a bunch of girlfriends! Nowadays, I use my bike to get me where I want to go, which means I do a lot of short journeys around the city (5-10 miles). I also enjoy longer day rides when I have time. I qualified as a National Standard Cycling Instructor in 2008, and since then have been freelancing. I work with complete beginners (learn to ride sessions for adults) through to experienced cyclists who are looking to improve skills and confidence on Manchester’s busy roads. I have Wheels for All Leader and Ride Leader qualifications, and am looking forward to starting a City and Guilds bike maintenance course in March 2013.
I use the Alexander Technique in my own life, and working with Sue (Alexander Technique teacher) on the Cycle Technique workshops has been a great way to deepen my understanding of the Alexander Technique.
