  • Courses cost £50 per person* and take place over one day. Training starts at 0845hrs and finishes at 1600hrs with plenty of time for breaks and lunch.
  • You will receive instruction from friendly qualified National Standards Cycling Instructors who will offer support and expertise  to help you develop the skills necessary to learn to ride or build on your current abilities. Great emphasis will be placed on finding out what aspect of cycling you wish to learn or improve upon, and the training will be tailored to your needs
  • Your Instructor will be enthusiastic and encouraging, making the sessions enjoyable, practical and outcome based. The sessions will be structured with the National Standard outcome based framework in mind and we aim to get beginners riding during the first session
  • Further sessions during the day will concentrate on building confidence and developing skills as well as progressing (if appropriate) to riding on quiet urban roads and off road cycle paths
