  • For 5-14-year-olds who can’t yet ride or want to raise their abilities

Family Fun Riding Session

Straightforward fun – kids’ mess around on indoor track. Riding ability unimportant. Depending on your size, try tandems, reclining bikes, four-seater bikes and more. A DBS-checked, qualified instructor will be present.

  • Please note: All kids must be supervised by an adult and you remain responsible for their safety
  • For 5-12-year olds who want to have a bit of fun with bikes
  • Develop cycle skills and confidence

Adult Cycle Lessons

Every Thursday, 12:30 and 3pm

Our professional trainer will work with you to assess your needs and to get you up and running in a friendly, stress-free manner, at your pace.

The lessons are subsidised in order to make them affordable to all. You can attend as many as you like but places are limited so please book in advance. All equipment is provided. 

Learn to ride – for the complete beginner (12:30-2:30 pm)

Our experienced instructors will guide you step by step, from getting on and off, to bike handling and balance. Using our indoor track. All equipment provided.

Novice – for new or returning riders (3-5 pm)

This course is delivered in a traffic-free environment and it is for people who can already ride a bike but who are not very confident. Pick up the skills and knowledge you need to go down to the local park or to take a trip out into the countryside.

Family Mechanics Session @ Capital of Cycling

Learn to fix your family’s bikes with our friendly mechanics

Friday 1st Nov – 12-2pm


Wouldn’t it be nice if when your kids break their bikes, that they could fix themselves with a bit of guidance from you?  Going to Halfords can be expensive. Make sure the bikes are safe and road-worthy for the whole family and learn/share some useful skills.

  • You can bring along up to four people (at least one adult per two children)
  • Bring your bikes along to fix in the session (bring up to three bikes)
  • Learn some basic mechanics including fixing punctures and brakes
  • Hopefully cycle away with working bikes!
  • If you don’t have bikes, we have low-cost second-hand bikes you could work on within the sessions
  • Wear sensible clothes that you don’t mind getting a bit of grease on!

The session will take place indoors in our Capital of Cycling workshop
