We understand that feeling safe whilst cycling is of paramount importance. There is a wealth of resources online to help you on your way. Although we would always recommend booking a 1-2-1 session with a qualified cycle trainer to boost your confidence before heading out on your bike.
Here are our ‘Top 3’ sources of information to get you started:
Ride Healthy: Offers top tips for new riders and shares the essential skills to build up your confidence.
Cycling UK: Advice for beginners on how to learn to ride a bike and ways to get started.
To compliment how-to guides and online videos, we strongly recommend booking on to a cycle training session. These sessions are often funded by your local council. Provision of sessions may have been affected recently by the pandemic and measures related to social distancing.
1-2-1 training sessions
Group sessions are beginning to start again over the coming weeks as well as 1-2-1 sessions. Training providers, such asPedal Ready, are a great place to start your cycling journey. Please note sessions require booking in advance.
