One to One Cycle Sessions

Have you considered cycling to work but never quite made the first trip?

Not sure of the right route? Not sure the roads are safe enough? Just need a little encouragement? 

Sign up for a free one to one cycle session and a trained instructor will help you get over these hurdles and any others barriers.

What is it?

Sign up for a free one to one cycle session and your instructor will send a trained cycle instructor to ride your commute to work (or a frequent journey you make during work) with you. Your instructor will spend 60 minutes at a time convenient for you working through any barriers to cycling you have and giving you the confidence to ride on your own. 

  • Your instructor will call you prior to the session to get an idea of your ability and where you would like to travel.
  • They will then plan an appropriate route based on this information prior to the session.
  • Your instructor will meet you at the arranged time and date and ride your journey with you.
  • During this ride your instructor will show you how to make yourself safe on the road and how to ride through each junction.
  • Once the journey is over your instructor will give you a map of your journey and will be happy to answer any questions you have.

If you wish to sign up for a session you will need to have a bike to ride and will need to make sure it is safe to ride. Your instructor can make minor tweaks before you set out but the more time spent on this the less time you can spend riding. Please make sure you have all the equipment you need (helmet, gloves in winter, lights if it is early). Your instructor will talk through this when they call before you session so don't worry if you are not sure.

If you do not own a bike why not borrow one from the City's Community Bike Library! Find out more here.

Hear what Ciara had to say about her one on one cycle session.

I had been thinking about cycling to work for a while, but I was so apprehensive about all the little details that I kept putting it off. Patrick is really friendly and made me feel at ease despite the fact I hadn’t cycled in a long time.  He showed me the best route to take to work, talked me through all the safety points, and answered all my questions. I felt a lot more confident after the session and I now cycle to work once or twice a week, with a goal to increase this in future. I would recommend these sessions to anyone considering cycling to work in the future - Ciara
