See booking calendar & book here

If you're a complete beginner we can get you cycling. Our success rate is extremely good and could have you cycling in one session!

For on-road training, an instructor can help you gain confidence for cycling around Bristol. By using a progressive training program, we can build up the skills necessary to safely ride in the city. Our training is based around you - whether you just want to learn how to get down the road, or navigate busy junctions in rush hour. We can give you the knowledge and reassurance you are cycling in the safest and best possible way. Advice on route planning is included

Lessons are based on the National Standard for cycle training where you can develop through 3 levels. Level 1 is off the road (usually in a park) where you'll learn the basic skills needed such as control, observations, signalling and stopping. Level 2 is basic on-road skills, including making a short journey on the road, using junctions and passing parked cars. Level 3 is the highest level where you can learn to use busier roads and make longer journeys.

Prices:

1 hour Learn to Ride for beginners Inc. bike hire is £45 per hour.

On road training including level 1,2 and 3 is either £45 for 1 hour, £65 for 1.5 hours or £75 for 2 hours.

2 x 1.5 hours is our most popular booking as this gives us a decent amount of time to complete level 1-3. Two 1.5 hour sessions can be booked together for £115 (10% off)
