Cycle confidence sessions

Cycle riding and maintenance sessions for beginners and experienced cyclists
In prioritising the health and safety of trainers and attendees, we have decided to cancel all cycle training courses for the forseeable future. Further updates will be provided in due course.

Want to learn to ride a bike, or to get out on the road? Want to find out how to ride safely around town, with your children or get tips on maintaining and repairing your bike?

Do all this and more with our friendly cycling training sessions!

From complete beginners, to experienced cyclists, there's something here for everyone – even professional drivers who need to get more cycle-aware.
