Cycle Training

Like waking up from a real bad dream
Suddenly everything is OK,
The storm has passed, the sun is shining,
yeah August 8th is a beautiful day!

– NOFX, August 8th

We’ve got cycle training almost every day this August, not just the 8th! Whether you want to learn to ride, or give your skills a summer tune-up, our instructors can help you gain the confidence to ride happily and comfortably on the roads.

We teach three levels of cycle training:

  • Level 1a – Taught at an off-the-road location, you will learn how to steer and balance on a bicycle.
  • Level 1b – Still taught off the road, you will learn the skills to control and master the bicycle, ready to move on to level 2.
  • Level 2 – You will get out on the roads! Level 2 gives you a real cycling experience so that you are able to deal with quiet roads and/or short journeys.
  • Level 3 – You will learn the skills to tackle a wider variety of traffic conditions. When you reach level 3 standard you will be able to deal with all types of road conditions and more challenging traffic situations.

All three levels can be taught in a few 2-hour chunks spread over a few weeks. We mainly teach on a one-to-one basis – one instructor and one trainee (that’s you!) at a time. Get in touch if you’d like to arrange a group training session.

Everyone starts at level 1. Sometimes the whole session is spent off the road mastering the control skills, but sometimes it’s just a 10 minute ‘checkover’; it depends on your experience and ability. See the map below for starting locations around Oxford.

Rates are £35 per hour of instruction with one of our National Standard accredited instructors.
