National Standard Cycle Training
A bike is more than just a bike - because there is a bike for every purpose.
All training is delivered to the highest standard ensuring that your safety is paramount. Personal customer service, finding the right training for your needs and alterations to suit your preferences are all part of our service.
As well as offering cycle training we can help with:
- basic bike maintenance such as fixing a puncture and adjusting brakes;
- advising on what bike to purchase whether a hybrid, mountain bike or road bike;
- completing a bike check and assisting with the correct saddle height;
- advise on cycling holidays;
- and much else besides.
Nervous about busy junctions, not sure about road positioning, afraid of roundabouts? Adult or child who has not yet learnt to ride a bike and needs training from scratch? Not quite ready for a Bikeability course but would like individual training - we can help! Would like to sample training before booking more training. Not a problem - you can book from as little as one hour to four hours of training.
We're happy to offer advice and make it possible for you to achieve the national standard in cycle training, increase your confidence or just help you get out on your bike!

Returning to Cycling
Not ridden a bike for years?
Concerned about today’s traffic levels.
Not as fit as you used to be?
All of the above are common remarks made to us but they should not be considered as barriers from getting back in the saddle.
We have experience in assisting adults in successfully returning to the pleasures of cycling. Whether for leisure or essential journeys our instructors are able to ride with you, initially on quieter roads, building confidence and progressing to assertive urban cycling if required. We can also introduce you to basic cycle maintenance so that an unforeseen puncture will not spoil your trip.
Riding as a Family Group
We regularly teach families to ride together. For any group there is a best formation. We can demonstrate to you how to ride protectively with your children and how to encourage them to use their bikes more often.
We are able to teach children from the age of 8 upwards to ride their bikes in fun, safe lessons. Complete beginners will need one to one lessons but we can teach children in pairs once they have mastered riding independently. We also cater for children with learning and physical disabilities. Please contact us to discuss this. We teach groups of people to ride together. If you intend to ride regularly with a partner or friends we can show you the most suitable way to ride in a group.
This course assists in planning suitable routes between places chosen by the client and will include such routes as home to work, railway station, school, town centre, swimming pool, etc.
Here the instructor rides with the client on a planned route providing guidance through road junctions and traffic systems to make for easier and more confident cycling.

You will be surprised how easy it is to build up from a few minutes riding a bike to being able to regularly cycle much further and for sustained periods
