Here is what people who havebeen on the training have to say about it;

I was absolutely buzzing after my lesson yesterday, thank you again so much for giving me the confidence to ride.

From the start his (Jonathan Tutte) patience and professional approach impressed us and gave us confidence. I have not rode a bicycle for many years and Jonathan's approach made the experience easy. My wife had never ridden a bicycle before, so he had to start at the very beginning with her and through his patience instilled confidence and she is now able to cycle, no mean achievement at 69 years.

I would have laughed at anyone telling me I would be cycling through Plymouth city centre this time last year. The safer-routes Jonathan showed me have been invaluable and I love finding ways to make the detour through the parks and green spaces as part of my route whenever I can. Jonathan is a calm and patient teacher and made me feel like I could achieve my goal of cycling across the city from very early into our lesson.
