Back in the Saddle: Adult Cycle Training

Cycling is for people of all ages, and our adult cycle training courses are designed to help adults get involved in bike riding.

About This Project

“This course will give me the confidence to get back out on my bike with friends and enjoy the environment.”

 

Cycling is for people of all ages, and our adult cycle training courses are designed to help adults get involved in bike riding.

 

Some adults have never ridden, and others haven’t been on a bike for some time.

 

Our adult cycle training courses can cater for individuals at all levels, whether they’re learning to ride for the first time, or want to improve their on-road confidence.

 

Working on a one-to-one basis, Go Velo’s experienced cycle instructors will be able to gauge an individual’s skill and confidence levels, and work with them, at a pace they can manage.

 

We can also provide this training in people’s own neighbourhoods, so that they’re building confidence in familiar surroundings.

 

 

A Question of Confidence

 

“I have not ridden for over 3 years, I lost all confidence with riding on the roads because of traffic.”

 

For many adults, confidence is the big issue they need to overcome when getting back into cycling. It’s also a factor if someone wants to try bike riding for the first time.

 

This is where the personal quality of professional cycle instruction is so important. We make sure that our instructors are in-tune with the people they’re training, offering encouragement but keeping them feeling safe, to gradually build their confidence.

 

“The instructor was so reassuring. She never left my side until I could at least balance. After about an hour I was a different person, and I’m in my seventies.”

 

And if people want to go on to use their freshly acquired cycle skills to cycle to work, then we can also provide journey training.

 

Our instructors and route planners will find the best cycle-friendly routes for you to take.

 

“My confidence grew from the first set of activities and nothing has been too much trouble.”
