Adult Cycle Training in Bristol

We offer training for people of all ages and abilities:

  • Level 1 - Beginner. Can't ride a bike? A bit wobbly? You're not alone.  We can help you get going.
  • Level 2 - Haven't cycled for a while? Confident on traffic-free routes but want to ride on the road? We can teach you to cycle confidently in traffic.
  • Level 3 - Experienced cyclist. We can help you negotiate complex junctions more easily, improve your rush hour strategies and road position.

Our friendly instructors are fully qualified to National Standards and train hundreds of cyclists each year. Lessons are at a location to suit you and specially tailored to your needs.


Thanks to Bristol City Council, anyone aged 16+ who lives, works or studies in Bristol can have up to three 1-hour cycle training sessions for FREE. All we require is a £5 refundable deposit.


Bookings are subject to our standard Terms & Conditions. 

What to bring

You will need to bring a roadworthy bike to use - that's it! Bike hire is available at some locations. UK law does not require you to wear a helmet. If you do it should fit correctly.

"A huge thank you to Life Cycle and my fantastic instructor. A few weeks ago I would have never had the confidence to ride on roads, roundabouts and everything in between...after just two lessons I've found a new love of cycling and feel good about not using my car." - Gemma.
