Just an hour of one to one tuition should be enough to put many of you on your way to a world of two-wheeled exploration!
Every year around 100 people, mostly adults, take part in our one hour introductory Learn to Ride courses. Participants have ranged in age from 5 to 75 so it just goes to show you’re never too old to learn. Cycling can give everybody the independence to get out and about on a bike more confidently and safely.
Our, ‘Bikeability Learn to Ride’ cycle training sessions are available through Andrew Hetherington from the Chiltern Cycle Hub. The lessons are heavily subsidised by Milton Keynes Council and via grant funding from the Department for Transport but you will have to pay a booking fee of £10 directly to the Andrew to secure your place. (One subsidised session per person.)
To book a place, please email Andrew on firstname.lastname@example.org
