Francis Dolan Bike Green
I am passionate about cycling and set up Bike Green in May 2018 after many years of working in outdoor education. My business, Bike Green, is an educational company which encourages adults and children to become careful and competent cyclists and promotes a healthier and more active lifestyle. Learning to cycle is a core life skill which can lead to independence and new opportunities for participants. Given my vast experience working with adults and children as well as those with special needs, I understand the importance of tailoring sessions to ensure that everyone is given the opportunity to learn to cycle at their own pace.
I am a Trail Cycle Leader and Mountain Bike Leader trained (recognised as the highest mountain biking award in Europe) as well as being a Cycling Ireland approved coach for Cycle Right, Sprocket Rocket and Gearing up off Road. I have received the Pro Tech Silver Plus Bike Maintenance Award and completed training in Inclusion Cycling and Disability Awareness in Sport. Having worked in the outdoors for ten years I have qualifications and awards in kayaking, canoeing, archery, orienteering, forest schools and up to date Rec 3 First Aid Remote Care.
I love to cycle in the countryside with my wife and 4 year old son. Its a fantastic way to unwind after a busy day. At the weekends I often jump on my bike and head to my local trails for an action packed day of fun and to keep my skills up to date.
“I would highly recommend Francis to anyone requiring cycling lessons. His patience, dedication and hard work made his time in our school a really pleasant experience for pupils and teachers alike.” Read more…
