Bikeability Learn to Ride sessions are for children or adults who are unable to cycle. This includes anything from those children who are ready to make the move to riding with pedals, or adults who have never learnt to cycle. Sessions are taught 1:1 or 2:1, in an off road environment for a 45 min session. The cost for this is from £10 for the first lesson and subsequent lessons £20.


Friends on BikesTraining for Adults

Many adults who take up cycling for work or pleasure can find that after a long period of not cycling, their confidence on the roads is a bit shaky. Cycle training is an ideal way to regain confidence and get the skills you need to cycle among traffic. We also offer training from Learn to Ride to advance level.
