Our Lessons & Prices

Purrfect Pedalling lessons are always one-to-one. Beginner lessons are much more effective one-to-one and on-road lessons need to be one-to-one for safety reasons.

All our training is tailored to your individual needs but is based on the new National Standard for Cycle Training which caters for everyone from complete beginners to advanced training for dealing with busy roads and difficult conditions.

There is no pass or fail in cycle training but we will inform you of the level within the National Standard that you have reached and what the aims of further training would be.

Beginner training is done at a suitable off-road location. The main locations we use are the cycle circuit in Tudor Grange Park Solihull, Cannon Hill Park in south Birmingham, Victoria Park in Leamington Spa and War Memorial Park in Coventry.

The best place to learn is Tudor Grange Park in Solihull which has lots of dedicated space. At other locations normal park paths are used which can be a problem at busy times. For this reason lessons there are usually in the morning.

Initial on-road training is done on quiet roads with advanced training being done on busy roads. Training may be done near your home subject to suitable roads being available for the level of training required.

Training can take place on your own bike which must be roadworthy. However we can provide a suitable bike for free.

Prices from January 2017

ONE-HOUR BEGINNER LESSONS. The standard cost of a one hour lesson at Tudor Grange is 26 with a free bike provided.

At other locations, including Cannon Hill Park, War Memorial Park, Coventry and Victoria Park, Leamington there is an additional charge of 5 per lesson to reflect the additional travelling time and cost.

ON-ROAD LESSONS. On-road lessons within the Solihull MBC boundary cost 26 for one hour. Outside Solihull they are 31 for one hour (subject to lesson availability in the chosen area)

TWO-HOUR LESSONS. The first hour is charged as above but the second hour is only 20 at any location. Part second hours are charged pro-rata eg. 10 for 30 mimutes. Two-hour lessons are not normally recommended for complete beginners and are more suitable for on-road lessons.

30 MINUTE LESSONS. These lessons cost 15 and are normally available only at Tudor Grange in Solihull for younger trainees (Year 2 pupils) for which 1 hour may be too long.

SHARED LESSONS. For practical and safety reasons we do not share lessons and all teaching is one-to-one. However lessons may be shared by time at no extra cost and this is quite common when teaching siblings. Common shared lessons are one-hour (eg. 30 minutes each) or 90 minute (eg. 45 minutes each). A 90 minute lesson in Solihull costs 36 or 41 elsewhere. The time split can be varied to reflect the ages and progress of the two trainees.

Package SAVER If you pay in advance for four more lessons at the end of any lesson, your current lesson is FREE (i.e. you get 5 lessons for the price of 4).

Gift VOUCHERS. If you purchase a Two-Lesson Gift Voucher for someone else (available for 52 or 62), the user of the voucher is entitled to 10% off any futher lessons.

The FREE use of a bike is avaialble if you do not have a bike of your own.

BASIC BIKE MAINTENANCE LESSONS . A 90 minute session at your home costs 40.

PAYMENT

Payment is by cash or cheque payable at the time of the lesson. If you purchase lessons in advance there is no limit to the period during which the lessons must be taken.
