Cycle training

At Hub + Spoke we provide cycle training for complete beginners through to experienced riders alike. Whether you want to get peddling for the first time in a safe and supported environment, or you want to improve your road craft and get more confident riding in traffic. Whatever you age, whatever your ability, we can help. Most of our cycle training is on a one-to-one basis, however, we are happy to arrange group training sessions too. We have British Cycling trained coaches, CTC trained ride leaders, and DfT National Standard Instructors.

LEARN TO BALANCE & RIDE

At Hub + Spoke we believe that cycling, like swimming, is a fundamental life skill that anyone and everyone can master. Our one-to-one balance and ride sessions are tailored to each individual, regardless of age, and promise to get you cycling. 

If you would like to arrange a session for yourself, or a child please get in touch. We usually charge a fee of £10.00 per session. In our experience, most folks are riding independently after one or two sessions.

BIKEABILITY:

Bikeability is the ‘cycling proficiency’ for the 21st century, designed to provide riders with the skills and confidence to ride their bikes on today’s roads. There are three levels that take you on a journey from the basics of balance and control, all the way through to planning and making a journey by yourself on busier roads.

Bikeability Level 1

During Level 1 Bikeability training, you learn to control and master your bike. The training takes place in an environment away from cars or traffic – usually in a playground or closed car park.

Bikeability Level 2

During Level 2 Bikeability training you will get out on the roads! Level 2 gives you a real cycling experience so that you are able to deal with traffic on short journeys such as cycling to school.

Bikeability Level 3

During Bikeability Level 3 training you will learn the skills to tackle more challenging roads and traffic situations. Level 3 training is often delivered one-to-one so can be tailored to your individual needs, such as your route to work or school.
