Learn to ride

Never got round to learning to cycle? We take you through the training in easy steps, at the pace you want to go. You can do it!

We also have a free two-page DIY guide, which we hope you will find useful if you are trying to teach someone to ride. You can download it from the link at the foot of this page.

Advanced training for primary and secondary students, out of school hours

This training is designed specifically to help students cycling to and from school, or thinking about cycling to their prospective secondary school. It's advanced training and students will be building on the skills they already have.

The training will include route planning. It's also very likely to include training along busier roads.

Refresh your skills

If you once learned to cycle but think your skills are a bit rusty, this training is for you. It is completely tailored to you personally so your starting point is our starting point.

When you book, we'll ask you what you think your current skills are and what you'd like to achieve. We'll work to that within the training time available.

I want to cycle to .......

This training helps you to plan and ride a route to work, the shops, the leisure centre, a friend's house - in fact wherever you want to go! It is completely tailored to you personally.

When you book, we'll ask you what you think your current skills are and what you'd like to achieve. We'll work to that within the training time available.

Family training

Feeling anxious about taking your family out for a bike ride? Let us take the stress out of learning how to escort a child. We train at a pace that suits you and your family, so you all understand how to ride together safely with confidence. Watch our short video about family cycle training.

Bikeability certificate training

If you would like to attain a Bikeability certificate - Level 1, Level 2 or Level 3 - we can train you.

Schools training

All schools are invited to make a booking. Schools can actually book at any time of the year but, with very late bookings, we cannot guarantee a slot during our busiest times. We offer:

  • "Pedals" training years 1 and 2.
  • Bikeability Level 1 for year 4.
  • Bikeability Level 2 for year 6 – or year 5 if requested.
  • Bikeability Level 3 for years 6, 7 and upwards.

Adapted bikes on training courses in schools

We want our training to be inclusive and our adapted bike guide describes how we try to make this possible.
