Instructor Training

Postby mad dad » 19 Apr 2006, 12:13pm

Is there anyone in the Northampton area who is willing and capable of training me to become an instructor? This is a serious request, please don't reply if you are not in a position to offer training.
Thanks

Hi Mad Dad
If you don't find anyone in Northampton you could come to Bristol. Look at www.lifecycleuk.org.uk for details.
Cycle Training UK offer courses in London....

Hi towedhaul

Thanks for a quick reply!

I find it hard to believe that enough people would actually pay for someone to teach them how to ride a bike, to make it possible to earn a living from it. That's what I really want to do-well, what I REALLY want to do is give up the car, but still earn money, and as I enjoy cycling so much, I see no reason not to try it. But as I said at the start, do people really pay for cycle training?

I'm a driving instructor, and most parents and friends think they can 'teach' it, so my main competition comes from them, not other instructors. Hope to hear from you again.

Thanks again for the response

If you contact cycletraining@ctc.org.uk they will be able to advise you who is your nearest NSI training provider., probably London although I remember seeing something about Cambridge getting involved but I can't be certain it was as a training provider. Manchester is another place that you can train.

Do you know that you can also apply for a bursary towards the cost of the training programme too, again from the CTC?
