Do you wish you could travel your commute by bike?
If you want to learn how to build your confidence to ride in today’s traffic we can offer free, one to one cycle training with a qualified instructor, tailor-made for your individual needs. Whether you’ve never been on a bike before or just want to boost your confidence, Bespoke cycle training can help you achieve your cycling goals.
Cycle training can also be delivered to groups, as long as all members are of a similar cycling ability. There’s no limit to the group sizes but if groups are large you may be split into two groups.

- Learn how to ride safely on busy roads, or at junctions/roundabouts
- Learn to ride safely as a family
- Find the best route to your place of work, and practice it with us
- Find out how to maintain your bike and keep it safe
- All sessions are FREE! Even the one-to-one sessions!
