Course Testimonials

I would highly recommend this course for those with limited or no experience of the content.
Perfect for my level of knowledge.  Very clear instruction. Nice friendly place.

The trainer was obviously incredibly knowledgeable but also happy to explain and share his knowledge at our pace.
I would totally recommend this course to other cyclists who want to be a bit more self sufficient – mending punctures, cleaning chains, adjusting brakes and gears.
Great instructor and nice friendly place.

Brilliant that no question was considered too daft!
Excellent – made us feel at home and relaxed. The trainer clearly knew his stuff and got it across to us in a really helpful way.

Great coffee and croissants!
