The North East provides excellent mountain biking opportunities for the beginner, to the more advanced rider. From forest and riverside trails, to technically difficult rides, it can all be found in the area.

If you would like to join us on a ride along Keelmans Way, Hadrian's Cycleway, or one of the trails at Kielder Forest, give us a call.

There are of course, many other options, please give us a call as we are happy to discuss your requirements, and tailor an itinerary to suit your needs.

Bike hire can be arranged if you do not have, or can't transport your own.

Bikeability

What is Bikeability?

Bikeability is ‘cycling proficiency’ for the 21st century, designed to give the next generation the skills and confidence to ride their bikes on today’s roads.

There are three Bikeability levels. A child will typically start Bikeability lessons once they have learnt to ride a bike, with 10-11 year olds progressing through to Level 2, and then Level 3 at secondary school (11-18 year olds). Certificates and shiny luminous badges for each level are awarded to children who successfully complete each course and children are encouraged and inspired to achieve all three levels, recognising that there is always more to learn and to enjoy on a bike.

Bikeability was developed by more than 20 professional organisations including the Royal Society for Prevention against Accidents and is supported by cross-Government departments including the Department for Transport, Department of Health and Department for Children, Schools and Families.

So far, more than 250,000 young cyclists have been trained and hundreds of thousands of coveted Bikeability badges have been awarded. The aim is for half a million children to be Bikeability trained by 2012 and the ultimate vision is that no child should leave primary school without the opportunity to take part in Bikeability training.

We provide all three levels of Bikeability Cycle Training, in the North East and Northumberland.

We offer cycle training to the general public, local authorities, other public sector bodies & commercial organisations to get more people cycling, more safely, more often.
