I've just taught a trainee to ride on the roads with confidence. Only thing is, two months ago she couldn't ride at all. If you're feeling inspired to learn how to ride, no matter the age, just do it.
Listen to my trainee's story here:
Barriers that stop people from learning how to ride often include being scared to go on the road, thinking they'll be too slow, image and perhaps that now they are an adult, they should know how to cycle and feel a bit embarrassed to learn. This really shouldn't be the case. I've taught people of all ages, sizes and backgrounds and they have all agreed that once they've learnt, they wish they'd done it sooner. It's never too late. Even if you can ride, but just want to gain confidence on the roads, then there are people like me out there willing to give you a hand.
Cycling is brilliant exercise, an economical form of transport, sociable and above all is fun. Some boroughs in the UK give cycling lessons for free, if you live or work in that borough. However, if you are unable to find free lessons, do go on to this website and find a cycling instructor near you who is accredited.
I teach in north London. If you would like some advice about cycling, please email me on:
