Looking for cycle training in the West Midlands?
Welcome to Purrfect Pedalling, providers of friendly and helpful cycle training for everyone.
Established in 2006, our aim is to help more people to discover the benefits of cycling, whether it's to make local journeys without using the car, enjoy the peace of the countryside, become fitter, or all three!
Purrfect Pedalling cycle training is based in the West Midlands and the main focus of our cycle training at the cycle circuit in Tudor Grange Park in Solihull town centre which is the best place to learn as there is lots of space and not too many people walking around!
Lessons may also be available in South Birmingham (Cannon Hill Park), Coventry (War Memorial Park) and Leamington Spa (Victoria Park). Lesson availability is more restricted at these locations (usually in the mornings) and there is a small supplement to reflect additional travelling time.
Learn to Cycle in 2016! If you want to get fit, save some money or meet some new people, then learning to cycle is a great way to achieve all those objectives . Start now and soon you could be out exploring our beautiful countryside with old or new friends. To get started simply text or call 07896 885726 and book your first lesson.
These are some of the types of cycle training we provide:
Learning to ride for adults of all ages We have helped adults of all ages to start cycling so it is never to late to learn!
Teaching children to learn to ride For various reasons some children miss out on learning to ride. Others may be have tried but had difficulties and perhaps now don't like being told what to do by mum or dad! Don't despair we can help. We are very patient and find that children are very patient with us which is a winning combination to get them quickly cycling! Purrfect Pedalling has taught several hundred children to ride.
Getting back in the saddle after a break If you cycled as a child and want to rediscover the fun and health benefits of cycling you may want some friendly help. Modern bikes can seem different (lots of gears and unfamiliar ways of adjusting them) and roads are definitely busier. We can help you feel more confident as you start cycling again.
Cycling on the road Many people are put off cycling on the road by traffic but even a small amount of on-road cycling will greatly enhance your enjoyment of cycling, increase your range and make it easy to get to that quiet park or off-road track. We will provide you with the basic skills to cycle safetly on the quieter roads and you will soon be exploring your local area.
Cycling to school We all think this is a good idea but how many children actually do it? We can provide your child with on-road training to help them cycle to school. This can include looking at the route with them and suggesting ways of dealing with specific problems (which may include walking parts of the route if that its the best option).
Cycling to Work. Great for fitness and finances, it can also be fun and quicker than taking the bus or car. However, unless you are very lucky, it may involve dealing with busy roads and some challenging junctions. We provide advanced training which includes coping with roundabouts, traffic signals and traffic queues. We may even be able to cycle your route to work with you or even base your training around this route.
Special Requirements If none of the above matches your requirements or you have some special needs please contact us to discuss them and we will see how we might best help you.

How our cycle training works
All our training is one-to-one which means it can be flexible and tailored towards your precise needs. On-road training can be undertaken anywhere providing there are roads which are suitable for the level of training you require. Our beginner training is usually done at suitable off-road locations in Solihull, Birmingham or Leamington but we may be able to find somewhere closer to your home if travel is a problem.

What our training is based on
Modern cycle training is based on the new National Standard which ranges from complete beginners to advanced on-road training which is now available to all ages. In schools this is replacing the old cycling proficiency and is known as 'Bikeability'. Click below to find out more about the three levels of cycle training available.
