Overview

Adult Cycle Training classes are 2.5-hour practical training modules for anyone who wants to learn to cycle and develop their confidence on a bike.

There are three distinct modules, depending on your experience:

  • Absolute beginners

This session is for people who have always wanted to cycle but never had the chance. Our instructors will help you develop balance on two wheels before introducing pedalling.

  • Introduction to on-road cycling

This session is for anyone who enjoys cycling on paths but is nervous about going on the road. Our instructors will introduce you to on-road cycling in a range of quiet locations and simple road layouts.

  • Advanced on-road cycling

This session is for people preparing to ride on busier roads.  Our instructors will cover more complex junctions, route planning, and provide tips on roadside repairs.
