The success of British cycle sport is directly linked to the number of people cycling in the UK and how we get more British people cycling is a hot topic. Of course there are many factors which effect this – road safety, the economy, fashion, public perception, etc. One area that we as experienced cyclists often take for granted, but is an empowering, confidence inspiring and important step for beginners, is cycle training.
Of course to have proper training for cyclists you need qualified instructors and their training used to be funded by organisations like Cycling England, which recently disappeared in governmental budget trimming exercises, despite the cycling booming in the UK.
Enter BikeRight!, now the UK’s largest cycle training organisation with 60+ National Standard accredited instructors training over 20,000 cyclists a year.
With a head office in Manchester and three further offices in Liverpool, Birmingham and Newcastle, Bikeright! offer adult cycle training, bikeability levels for schools, National Standard Cycle Instructor Training Courses, City & Guilds Bicycle Maintenance Courses, Mountain Bike Skills Courses, Community and Business cycling initiatives.
They also train Emergency Services personnel and their Ride Leader courses are very popular, reflecting the increased need for trained persons on mass-participation and charity rides.
BikeRight! aims to make cycling viable, safer and better and their training courses impact on the safety of cyclists and efficiency of bicycles, they teach people new practical skills, save them money and generally make life on two wheels more comfortable and convenient.
BikeRight! recently trained their 2001st instructor and see clear parallels between the growth of BikeRight! over the last two years and the increased popularity of cycling.
