THE coach at a Great Yarmouth cycling club is promising budding riders they will be fitter and faster in four weeks or get their money back.
Neil Turner, development officer and coach for the Great Yarmouth Cycling Club, is certain anyone who signs up for the Thursday evening cycling sessions around Somerleyton Hall will notice improvements in their abilities in four weeks.
Named “time trials” the five and ten-mile rides offer cyclists the chance to develop their skills over the summer through the evening events.
Mr Turner said: “We're offering four weeks of coaching and racing and if you're not fitter and faster at the end of the four weeks you can have your money back.”

The meeting point - which is also the start and finish point - is one mile from Market Lane from the junction with the B1074 in Somerleyton village.
Mr Turner added: “The quiet rolling roads around Somerleyton are perfect for the time trials but to ensure we are as safe as possible we have marshals along the route and the police are aware when we are there. Club members are covered by insurance too.”

The cycling sessions support the national Change 4 Life health campaign to encourage people to eat less, move more and life longer. Part of the campaign includes Bike 4 Life.
Marten Payne, Physical Activity Coordinator for NHS GYW, added: “You may have a bike or have enjoyed cycling in the past but haven't done it for a while.
This opportunity means you can have a go in a safe group setting and find out how fit and fast you can become. It's a great way to get back into cycling.”
NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney's Physical Activity Team is supporting the sessions which are part of the cycling club's membership costing �15 for adults or �7.50 for youngsters and those eligible for concessions.
