Learn to ride

Who's it for?

This is for you if you're new to cycling, or haven't ridden for many years. You might not even have a bike.

Sessions are open to those over the age of 12 when accompanied by an adult or 16 when unaccompanied.

What you'll learn

Run by a qualified instructor, the course will give you the confidence to take the first step into cycling, at your own pace, starting from getting on your bike.

You'll be in a small group with other beginners in a quiet outdoor area and there's no pressure; come to as many sessions as it takes.

You'll learn how to:

  • Get on and off your bike.
  • Start and stop.
  • Steer and change speed.
  • Check your bike before you ride.

What you need

We provide a bike but you can bring your own if you prefer and wear whatever you feel comfortable to cycle in.


Sessions are held across Greater Manchester.

Length of session

Each session lasts two hours.
