Cycle training

Cycle training is by far one of the best ways to boost your confidence on two wheels. Whether you’re getting on a bike for the first time or a regular cyclist looking to improve your skills on busy roads, instructors will provide expert personalised tuition to suit your individual abilities and goals.

Cycle training will help to make your journeys safe and enjoyable, and teach you many key skills such as good road positioning, signalling and visibility. Even the most experienced cyclist is guaranteed to learn something new!

Sustrans is registered with the Department for Transport in England as a Bikeability delivery organistation, providing cycle training to the National Standard. We are also members of TABS, The Association of Bikeability Schemes.

Cycle training in England

Many of our officers are Bikeability instructors, so if you need cycle training, and work with Sustrans at your workplace or school, please ask your officer for further information. If you do not have a Sustrans officer in your office or school, visit the Bikeability website to find providers in your area. Your local council can often advise on cycle training, and may even provide it for free.
