The session last 2 hours and takes place outdoors at Caludon Castle Sports Centre on Saturdays from May - July and September - October. You can ask to borrow a bike and helmet when you book a beginners course online.
On road training

Advanced: Do you ride on the road and would like to build your confidence to ride on busier roads or start riding to work? The training includes busier streets, queuing traffic, complex junctions and roundabouts.
Request your first on road training session using the online form. A cycle trainer will then contact you to arrange a suitable time and place. Bikes and helmets are available to borrow from certain venues.
