What Others Say

Dilys is really encouraging and gives you the confidence. The most important thing I found was that she allowed you to progress when you felt confident to do so and although encouraging was never pushy.

I wanted to go cycling with my children. But I had not got on a bike for over 20 years.
A google search led me to contact Dilys and it was the most useful thing I did in 2013.
I was apprehensive about how I would cope with the lessons – I feared that I may fall and injure my dodgy knee.
Dilys put me at ease right with the very first lesson. Her teaching is methodical and she is full of encouragement. By the end of the first lesson, I had the confidence to cycle independently! I did not have a single fall which is down to the way I was taught. I can now join my kids when they cycle every weekend! A ride to get some fresh air is fantastic

I am very big man about 30st last year i decided to take better control of my health. Among the activities i wanted to do was cycling but it was not in top of my list. The reason is that i am in my 40s and I NEVER been on two wheels before.
I contacted Dilys who gave all the support patience and understanding. I was converted to love bicycles and cycling. With the scheme it is very affordable. I am doing about 21miles a week, I lost 1.5st, and i feel great. I am indebted to the program and to Dilys as my trainer specifically.

Thinking of all the reasons like cycling with my grandchildren not using my car for those short trips and getting fitter so it was an opportunity not to
miss. I applied and through the scheme i booked lessons with the excellent Dilys Gartside who on my first meeting dispel any doubts i had before my lessons about being able to get my balance, under her expert tuition and patience i gain my balance on on my second lesson.
