Cycling skills and training courses
In Milton Keynes we offer a range of cycle training courses to help you improve your cycling skills and boost your confidence, no matter what your current experience is.
Bikeability Cycle Training
Bikeability is a cycle training programme that teaches adults and children the practical skills they need to ride their bikes.
There are 3 levels of Bikeability, each designed to progressively improve cycling skills from the very basics of balance and control through to riding independently on busy roads, and a number of Bikeability Plus courses, which have been designed to break down the barriers that may prevent people from cycling.
Bikeability cycle training is a great way to boost your confidence on a bike, have fun, learn about road safety and improve your ability to perceive and respond to modern day traffic situations.
With an increase in child and adult obesity in recent years, cycling is a great form of exercise that can be squeezed into everyday life by riding to school or work or the local shops. For many young people, it can be their first step towards independent travel.
By providing the skills you need to enjoy cycling and ride more safely it opens up a world of opportunities to get out and ride with friends and family. Your can also explore the local area on the huge network of leisure routes and Redways in Milton Keynes.
“One of the most important days of my life, was when I learned to ride a bicycle.”
