National Standard Cycle Training

National Standard Cycle Training - Bikeability levels 1, 2 & 3

Training offered

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.

 

Route Planning

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.

 

Accompanied Journeys

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.

 

Cycling for Health

Cycling is a great way of getting regular exercise.
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

 

Basic Cycle Maintenance

Basic cycle maintenance sessions covering emergency roadside
repairs, punctures, etc. Along with simple checks and procedures to help keep
your bike roadworthy

  • Daniella Thompson (Wednesday, August 16 17 04:32 pm BST)

    Hi,

    I would like to book a training course with yourselves please? I have recently bought a bike for off road cycling, however I would like to feel confident to cycle on the road if I needed too! I am also unsure of how to use the gears properly and to have some basic knowledge on how to look after my bike.

    I look forward to hearing back you.

    Hi I am a mom of 6 and I am 34 yrs old I have never been able to ride a bike and would love to learn so I can go cycling with my family are there any lessons available around Weymouth and how much
    please

  • Esra (Wednesday, December 17 14 10:44 am GMT)

    Its clearly not desngied to show that looks to me that its desngied to show ordinary people that cycling can be an ordinary part of life for shopping and travel. That you dont need specialist
    clothing or bikes

  • Mert (Wednesday, December 17 14 10:19 am GMT)

    What, no pinch points wihotut cycle bypass, and no 20 cm-wide cycle lanes? You sure it\'s London? I kid! If I went around on the backstreets instead of the main streets on weekends I found riding
    around London like this video. Of course you can\'t do many commutes or many trips wihotut coming across busy places. Get them to fix up your barclay\'s superhighways and have them traverse the
    entirety of central London instead of terminating as they enter it! Maybe they\'ll have learned something from Velo City 2012 (pretty sure there were quite a few UK delegates from various levels of
    government there)

    Thanks for the positive comments. Our aim is to get more people cycling safely. On Your Bike Cycle Training

    Great article! We will be linking to this great article on our site.
    Keep up the great writing.

    My brother recommended I might like this website. He was
    entirely right. This post truly made my day. You can not imagine just how much time I had spent for this information!
    Thanks!

    The city has 60 kilometers of bike lanes created in the city's main avenues, and you can cross it only using bicycles for transportation. The planning of the municipality provides for the
    construction of the largest cycling network in Latin America in coming years and implement a public bike system, similar to European cities as Barcelona and Paris. Sorocaba is currently the second
    largest cycling loop of Brazil, after Rio de Janeiro.

    This approach has now been supplemented by the new National Standard for cycle training which is more focussed on practical on-road training.[31] This is part of Cycling England's portfolio of
    practical assistance to local authorities and other bodies, aimed at achieving their aim of "More cycling, more safely, more often".

  • Nic Read (Sunday, September 09 12 05:00 pm BST)

    We have kids aged 14, 12, 9 and 5 who need to learn to ride to school. Our postcode area is GU16 so Farnham, Bracknell or Basignstoke are the closest Bikeability locations for after-school training.
    How do we get started?
