Instructor Training

From toddlers to OAPs, nearly everyone loves to cycle; however most people can give reasons why they don’t do it more regularly.

This is where National Standard accredited cycling instructors can make a difference. From teaching groups of school children to enhancing cycling skills among existing adult cyclists the role of a qualified cycle instructor is key to developing cycling locally and supporting national strategy on active lifestyles.

BikeRight! has been training cyclists for 10 years and was the first accredited cycle instructor training centre in the UK. We have trained over 2500 people as National Standard cycle instructors, who are now themselves delivering quality cycle training and enjoying the benefits that this brings.
