Avanti Cycling is now accredited to deliver the new Cycle Training Instructor standards. We are in partnership with Cycling Instructor Ltd and are accredited to deliver:

1. The new 1st for Sport Level 2 award in Instructing Cycle Training, the old NSI course

2. The new 1st for Sport Level 3 award in developing cycle training instructors, the old NSIT course

3. Recognised Prior Learning, accrediting instructors to deliver the new National Standards.

All cycle instructors need now to go through the RPL route to re-accredit themselves to deliver the 2019 National Cycling Standards; they have till July 2021 to do this. We can help.

We can also deliver professional development to teach the new Cycling Standards. Did you know that the old 17 Level 2 outcomes are no longer part of the syllabus? Speak to us, we can help.

National Standard Instructor Training

Greg Woodford was working within the National Standards ambit from the beginning. He was part of the working group that created the standards.

Ride Leading training

As one of the leading experts in ride leading (on road) in the UK, Greg Woodford has created a variety of on-road ride leading courses and delivered them throughout the UK. Avanti Cycling has also worked in partnership with national organisations to develop courses that suit their requirements.

Courses that can be delivered:

  1. Club Leader course. A one-day course aimed at cycling/triathlon clubs to develop best practice in leading club runs.
  2. Ride Leader course, aimed at the customer who wishes to lead leisure rides. This suite of courses can last from one to three days, depending on the outcomes you wish to achieve.
  3. Bespoke ride leader course. Avanti Cycling has experience in creating courses to fit in with your outcomes – come and talk to us.
  4. You don’t want a full course? We can come and deliver a workshop to your club about best practice in ride leading. These presentations are designed to encourage new leaders to come through. This workshop will work out substantially more economical as we do not need to keep to tight ratios as we are not assessing the outcomes of the participants.
