Whether you want to learn to ride a bike, or give your skills a brush-up, our instructors can help you gain the confidence to ride happily, safely, and comfortably on the roads.
- 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 sessions spread over a few weeks.
Please note that anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult parent or legal guardian at all times (this may mean the guardian needs to bring their bike!)
We support inclusive cycling, and we recommend getting in touch with Wheels For All who run introductory inclusive cycling sessions at Horspath Race Track every Friday. Cycling can be a liberating way for Disabled People to get around.
If you want to arrange a group session please get in touch as they require more organisation.
Currently there is subsidised training available to members of the University of Oxford, or for employees of Oxford Health NHS Trust or Climate Outreach. The booking system will ask you to indicate who is going to pay for your lesson and to provide ID.
