The project focuses on a real need of target groups/associations and is meant to be highly

cyclists as well) in addressing the issue of lack of physical activity and well-being.
The Cure project experiences will be sustainable and deliverable to the wider public in the
form of Manual and “the Pills for Health”, which will be available via the project website (it
will be maintained for another year after the project completion), project accounts in social

The course’s objective is to offer an introduction to bicycle touring as a leisure sport
activity that can be practiced individually or as a group activity. Taking place once a week
over 3 months (10 sessions in total), each session will start with a general Theory
Introduction (about 45 minutes), to be followed by a 3-hour practical part on the road.
During the practical sessions, participants will be trained and accompanied by at least 2
trainers appointed by a responsible partner – one to lead the team and one biking at the
end to supervise the whole team.
