Cycle Instructor training company BikeRight! has just trained its 1,000th National Standards Cycle Instructor.
Demand is high for instructors due to the popularity of cycling across the country and the fact that appropriate training can help reduce risk for cyclists on today’s busy roads.
With the current campaign to sign-up more women as cycle instructors it’s fitting that BikeRight!s 1,000th instructor is fitness trainer Debbie Barham, from Denton in Manchester.
“I am not a regular cyclist but intend to do a lot more now that I have the confidence and training. I get a real buzz from introducing people to new activities and as a cycle instructor working with mainly adults and families it means I can do just that,” said Debbie.
The BikeRight! instructor courses have been delivered across the UK and Ireland since 2001, with trainees coming from other cycle training companies, Local Authorities, Police forces and organisations such as British Cycling and Sustrans.
