Cycle Training

Cycle Training Homepage

British Cycling delivers Bikeability and adult cycle training to empower more people to start cycling; increasing their health and well-being and making Britain’s roads a better place to be.

Cycle Training provides people with the necessary skills and confidence to cycle on today’s roads.

To deliver effective cycle training, we need enthusiastic and committed instructors to ensure young people and adults alike are enthused to cycle more regularly and with less risk.

We pride ourselves on the quality of our courses and supporting resources, and we hope you can join us in getting more people active by taking to their bikes.

What is Bikeability?

Bikeability is cycling proficiency for the 21st century, aimed at adults and primarily young people to teach the skills to ride safely on roads to make trips by bike.

Bikeability in schools

Within schools, cycling can feature in education in ways you might not have imagined.

High-quality cycle training instructors are at the heart of increasing the number of young people cycling regularly, improving their health and fitness, reducing road congestion and increasing participation in cycling across all levels and disciplines.

Improve your instructing

Delivering cycle training is a continuous learning process, which you should constantly aim to improve. The Department for Transport (DfT) recommends that instructors attend at least three hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) every year.
