Courses are being run as follows:
Please follow the screens to book.
This training is for you if you are over 18 and can't ride a bike. We will help you through stages of safely getting on and off a bike, braking, steering, getting a good balance and pedalling. Most people are able to achieve these by the end of the course, although it's impossible for us to guarantee it. The training will give you the skills to go on and practice.
It will be in a traffic-free area. Please meet at Spelthorne Leisure Centre.
We allocate two hours, allowing for an unhurried pace with rest breaks.
Before starting the training, you just need to have a bike in working condition. If your bike has stabilsers please remove them before the training. Please note that a road bike with drop handle bars is not suitable for this training.
We collect some personal information when you book. To see how it is used, please read our statement (opens in new window).

Thank you. You have selected Learn to Ride for adults.
This course is for people who cannot ride at all, or who can only do so with stabilisers. If you can already ride a little and want to improve your basic balance and control skills, please consider our "Level 1" course.
If you are booking for someone aged under 18, please select our "Learn to Ride for under-18s" course.
Your cycle must be roadworthy. Could you check it before the training, please.
The ABC check (external link, opens in a new window) is the quickest check, and the M check (external link, opens in new window) is more thorough. BMX bikes must have both brakes fitted.
Our Instructors are authorised to make minor adjustments, with your consent, such as adjusting saddle height, but they are not cycle mechanics.
British law does not compel cyclists of any age to wear helmets but rule 59 of the Highway Code states: 'You should wear a cycle helmet that conforms to current regulations, is the correct size and securely fastened. Evidence suggests that a correctly fitted helmet will reduce your risk of sustaining a head injury in certain circumstances.'
We recommend that you wear a helmet that is correctly fitted (external link, opens in a new window).
Due to a period of inactivity your booking is about to terminate and you will be redirected to the start of the booking process automatically.
