Cycle Skills - For anyone who lives, works or studies in Slough

Cycle Experience offers a range of cycle skills sessions created to help Slough residents of all ages and abilities to get on their bike, build confidence and ride smarter. All sessions are delivered by experienced cycling instructors in small groups of similar ability. Don’t have a bike? No problem. Bikes are provided to all schools for Bikeability and you can also hire one when you book a skills session.

Learn to Balance and Ride

All sessions can be booked online and are subsidised by Slough Borough Council. Learn to Balance and Ride Just like swimming, learning to cycle is an essential life skill for every child. Learn to balance and ride group sessions help children from 3 years upwards to develop their balance and control to a level where they can pedal independently on two wheels.


Once your child has learnt to cycle, Bikeability helps 7-14 year olds gain the practical skills, confidence and understanding to enable them to cycle on today’s roads. There are three Bikeability levels, each designed to improve cycling skills, no matter what is known already. Levels 1, 2 and 3 take your child from the basics of balance and control, all the way to planning and making an independent journey on busier roads. Bikeability courses are offered during term time at your child’s school. School holiday Bikeability courses can be booked via Cycle Experience.
