Here at the Nationwide Cycling Academy, we provide safe and fun beginner cycle training activities.  We have Learn 2 Ride venues in Greater Manchester and Blackburn.

Our sessions are designed to teach children, aged from 5 years old, how to ride confidently without stabilisers or support. Our aim is to encourage them to participate, keeping them healthy and active from a young age.
Our coaching team is enthusiastic and professional when it comes to children's cycling lessons.

NCA Instructors are fully qualified to National Standard, are DBS checked, and have got thousands of children up and riding over the years.

NCA is an accredited DFT Bikeability Cycle Training provider, delivering cycle training in schools across Greater Manchester.

All our Learn2Ride training sessions are delivered on a 1 2 1 basis. We believe that children learn faster when they are given more individual attention in order to develop their skills.


Learning to ride a bike is a huge life milestone which helps to build confidence and independence in children. Our instructors are always available for a chat beforehand if you have a child who is particularly nervous or has any additional needs.

Bikes are available on the day and are provided free of charge, but you are more than welcome to bring your child’s own bike and equipment if you prefer. NCA Certificates are given to new riders, and stickers to those who may require a little more practice. 

Once the children are rolling on two wheels, we also have Cycle skills and Bikeability courses which gently introduce children to road safety, Mountain Bike training for the thrill seekers, and Cycle Maintenance sessions so that they can keep their bikes in great condition.

Finally, our holiday cycle camp always proves to be a hit and is a great way to keep the children entertained through the school holidays.

Visit our website or contact our staff today to find out more, we look forward to seeing you and your family out on the trails soon!
