Cycling training


If you’re new to cycling, or if you just want to improve your road skills, you can book a private training session with an instructor.

If you live or work in North Somerset, you are eligible for free cycle training sessions. There’s no hidden costs and no catches.

You can book up to two lessons with our experienced trainer, each lasting about an hour. Sessions can be one-to-one, with a partner or part of a group. Sessions can be tailored to any level of experience and will be held at a time and place that suits you. The trainer can help you plan a route and offer an accompanied ride to work. You will also receive useful advice on safety and how to adjust your bike.
