Cycle skills training

Adult Cycle skills

Whether you are a first time rider or a regular cyclist looking to improve your skills, we provide fully subsidised* tailored training courses to suit your individual abilities and goals. We offer adult group sessions and one to one sessions.
 
* Subsidised by Transport for London. Subject to availability and funding. 

 

Adult Cycle Skills sessions

A cycling instructor will meet you at your home or at a local park and will provide cycle training for you on a one to one basis. This can be at whatever level you require, from learning to ride a bike to a session on busy roads or a specific journey that you would like to make. Sessions will last for 90 minutes and we can provide a bike for the session if you are a beginner or don't have one yet.

Types of One to One Sessions

Basic cycle skills
You will practice in a safe, off-road environment with a fully qualified instructor. In a session, you will learn the basics, build skills and gain confidence to navigate around your local area. Due to the Covid-19 restrictions we are not currently able to offer sessions to complete beginners as our instructors will need to keep a 2m distance at all times and would need to support trainees while they are learning to balance. 

If you are unable to start off on your own on a bike, please sign up to our waiting list and we will contact you when we are able to offer complete beginner sessions. In the meantime there some very good tips on learning to ride as an adult in this Cycling Uk Video


Road confidence cycle skills
Improve your cycling skills and confidence with a free session tailored to you. You will start in a safe, off-road environment to refresh your cycling technique and develop new skills before moving on to practice on quiet roads. Your qualified instructor will support you throughout to help you cycle more confidently.

Advanced cycle skills
Perfect your cycling techniques with a free one-to-one session from a fully qualified trainer. Improve your performance when dealing with complex junctions, heavy traffic or cycling at night and receive assurance that you are cycling efficiently and effectively.

Family cycle skills
Gain confidence and learn skills to cycle as a family with a free family cycling session. In the session a qualified instructor will teach you how to cycle with children, using quiet routes and parks. These sessions offer the opportunity to build on or prepare for Bikeability skills taught in schools.
