Do you want to be more confident when riding your bicycle in traffic?
Would you cycle more if you had a friendly social group to join?
Did you stop cycling a number of years ago, and want to get back on a bike now?
Have you never learned to cycle, but want to start now?
I am a patient, flexible and engaging female instructor and coach who helps adults and children cycle more safely and regularly
My bike rides are specially designed to build your skills whilst riding through some of the best cycling areas in the Yorkshire Dales. I provide advice and support that will enable you to gain confidence and develop your potential to levels you never thought possible. Whether you aim to have more fun, improve your fitness or prepare for racing, bike coaching can be tailored to suit you
To increase your confidence on the road, why not sign up for a Bikeability course?
These courses can be run close to your home using your local roads.
Level 1 covers basic bike handling skills in a traffic free environment; level 2 gives you road experience and confidence and level 3 will ensure you are able to manage all traffic conditions and road environments including complex junctions, multi lane traffic, large roundabouts etc. Sign up by yourself or with a group of friends
