Cycle tuition overview - what course is best for you...

Learn to Ride

Do you consider yourself to be a complete beginner?

You may be among the many that never learnt to ride as a child or you may have recently uncovered a new desire to learn. Our sessions are run by experienced instructors who will guide you step by step, from getting on and off your bike to making the bike go where you want, while continuously working on your balance.

Level 1 for Novices

Have you recently learnt how to ride a bike or are you returning to cycling after a long break?

A Level 1 course is for those who can ride a bike but are not very confident about their cycling abilities. Level 1 course is delivered in a safe traffic free environment. Pick up the skills and knowledge you need to go down to the local park, or to take a trip out into the countryside. You may also one day wish to cycle to work; we can help you work towards this too.

Level 2 for Improvers

Do today's road look like a no go area for you and your two wheels?

Whether you've been cycling for a while or returning to cycling, today’s roads may seem daunting. Level 2 will help you boost your confidence, skills and cycling techniques for today’s traffic. This training is delivered on quiet roads with some traffic, where you will have the opportunity to practice the theory of on road cycling.

Level 3 for Advanced riders

Would you like to try that commute to work, is there a certain road or roundabout you still find daunting?

Level 3 is delivered as a 1-1, our instructor can come to you and ride your route with you, where they can show you how to tackle busy roads and junctions with ease and confidence. You may have been cycling and using the roads for years but there is always something new to learn to hone your skills.
