Group Cycle Training Courses
Our training courses are designed to teach people to ride more efficiently, with reduced risk and increased confidence. Whether you are a beginner; have recently returned to cycling; cycle to school or work; or already cycle regularly, we have courses that develop essential skills to make you a confident cyclist.
Like any skill, there are specific techniques that will improve the way you can achieve results. Our internationally accredited trainers will provide you with the expert training required for safe and confident cycling.
Our courses are split over 3 stages:
Stage 1 – is delivered in a safe traffic free environment. It focuses on basic bike checks, suitable clothing, bike control, emergency stopping, avoiding obstacles in your cycle line, observation and signalling.
Stage 2 – takes place on-road where traffic volumes are normally low. Now in control of your bike we take you to the road and instruct you on road positioning, safe cycle lines, sharing the road with other users, communication with other road users; and what to do at various junctions.
Stage 3 – training is based on busier roads and more complex situations. Learn to cycle in busy road situations; develop a strong and assertive cycling style that blends in with other road users; develop road awareness and risk management. Have the confidence to ride anywhere cycling is permitted.
On completion, each cyclist will know how to check their bike is roadworthy; how to control their bike; how to interact with other road users; understand the rules of the road pertaining to cyclists; and have practical experience of cycling in a variety of real environments.
There are no tests to pass. Trainees will be observed throughout all stages of training to ensure correct skills are being developed. Progress through the course content will be at the pace of each trainee.
If you would like to attend a course with a group of friends or perhaps you are an employer concerned about your employees on the road, give us a call, we would be delighted to chat with you about the available options. Maybe we can design a bespoke bike training course for you.
