Whatever your age and experience, there’s a training programme on hand to help you start, get back into or continue riding.
Bikeability – cycle training for young people
Bikeability is perfect for learning everything from the basics of balance to how to ride on busier roads, with three levels to progress through.
The training is often offered in schools to give children the skills they need to enjoy cycling from an early age.
There are three Bikeability levels, with each level designed to help improve cycling skills, no matter what the cyclist knows already. Levels 1, 2 and 3 take trainees on a journey from the basics of balance and control, all the way through to planning and making a journey by themselves on busier roads.
To find out what training is available for your child, contact your school or Everybody Sport and Recreation Trust, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cycle training for adults
Don’t worry if you’re an adult – it’s never too late!
For example, the Everybody Sport and Recreation Trust offers a wide range of cycle training, from learning to ride to bike maintenance and commuter cycling.
For more information on other cycle training programmes, email the Everybody Sport and Recreation Trust.
Alternatively, many local cycling groups are also happy to escort adults on their first road rides for free to help them gain a little more confidence.
