Helping you to get cycling in and around Lincoln

Cycling is a great skill to have, giving you more travel options, increasing your fitness and helping the environment. If you are new to cycling or want to brush up on your skills, cycle training can help get you on your bike in no time.

If you’ve made the decision to start cycling - great! Cycling is not only good for you (did you know that just 30 minutes can burn up to 400 calories?), but it also helps reduce congestion, emissions and air pollution. Meaning it’s better for your health, better for your wallet and better for the environment.

Alternatively, there are a number of training providers in Lincoln to help get you ready to ride confidently on your bike.

Adult cycle training

Access Lincoln works closely with Outspoken Training to deliver cycle training to adults aged 18 and over in the Lincoln area.

There are three Outspoken Training levels to choose from:

  1. New Starters
  2. Rusty Riders
  3. Advanced Cyclists

Each course will give you more confidence and skills to cycle safely both on and off local roads. Courses cost £20 for a 2-hour session.

If you’re a business or organisation, cycle training can also be organised for your employees at your place of work.


Bikeability provides on and off-road training to groups in schools, through clubs, to families or individually to children, adults, new learners and experienced cyclists.

Bikeability is about gaining practical skills and understanding how to cycle on today’s roads. Bikeability gives everyone the skills and confidence for all kinds of cycling.

There are three Bikeability levels, each designed to improve cycling skills, no matter what is known already. Levels 1, 2 and 3 take trainees from the basics of balance and control, all the way to planning and making an independent journey on busier roads. You can learn more about Bikeability, here.

Access Lincoln aims to make cycling to, from and around the city of Lincoln as easy and convenient as possible through a number of schemes from hirebike, Park & Bike, secure cycle storage facilities and Dr Bike sessions.
