About our club


Its never too early to learn a new skill

Cyclewise Academy was founded in 2010 with a goal of “Making it Happen” for our young riders. We have a dedicated team of qualified volunteer leaders and a dynamic and growing membership of 8 to 18-year-olds who join us regularly to enjoy this fantastic opportunity.

Why choose us?

Professional, Knowledgeable, Passionate, Dedicated, Inspiring, Efficient and Fun are just some of the words you will use to describe your Cyclewise experience.


The aim of the Cyclewise Academy is really quite simple:

To provide opportunities for young bikers to enjoy fun, safe and exciting mountain biking in one of the world's best places to bike... the Lake District.
To provide a progressive structure of coaching/sessions to enable the riders to improve their technique/understanding of the sport and get more enjoyment from their riding.
If applicable, help identify the future champions of the sport and assist in realising their potential sport and assist in realising their potential.
Enable young riders to meet other like-minded young riders.


Our Cyclewise Academy leaders are proficient in providing and delivering a variety of led rides, incorporating sessions on navigation, leadership, first aid, mechanics and maintenance, hydration, nutrition, racing and kit required. This fantastic environment sets the skills associated with the sport of mountain biking and above all makes our sport SAFE and FUN!

Building on our past experiences, we are developing a programme of Academy sessions, with a structured and logical approach. This will see strategically planned away days to practice and embed the learning in different environments.

We run sessions based at Whinlatter, the Lakes and a weekend away.


The Academy is managed by a team of dedicated volunteer leaders, many of whom have their own kids in the club. We have fully qualified Level 2 British Cycling Leaders .
