Freelance Cycle Instructors - Bristol, North Somerset and Swindon
We deliver Bikeability Levels 1, 2 & 3 in three local authority areas. Recruitment of new instructors is currently on hold in all areas, however, we are always interested to hear from anyone who is already a qualified instructor.
"I love watching the trainees gain skills and confidence. Sometimes they are nervous about riding on the roads but you get a real sense of achievement as you help them understand the rules of the road. Passing the joys of two-wheeled transport onto the next generation is incredibly satisfying."
