Learn to Ride training

If it’s been a while since you’ve ridden a bike, or maybe you’ve never had the chance to try, Learn to Ride is the course for you.

Held in accessible, local venues across Greater Manchester, Learn to Ride courses are led by a qualified instructor and teach the basics of the bike. You’ll be trained in a group of people of a similar ability. We provide bikes and helmets, but you’re welcome to bring your own if you prefer.

Over two hours you’ll learn:

  • Things you should check before each ride
  • Getting on your bike, balancing and getting off again
  • Starting and stopping
  • Using the bike’s gears
  • How to look, signal and turn
  • Steering your bike and stopping quickly if you need to

We’ll come to you during the day, in the evening or at weekends; just choose what suits and have your bike at the ready. Best of all, the training is free.
