When not doing that, I'm leading Sky Rides and Breeze women's rides for British Cycling or campaigning for safer cycling.  I work from North Dorset to Southampton."

Sound Cycling – Eleanor van der Hoest, telephone: 07952 314768 or email Individuals and families welcome “I learnt to ride as an adult myself so I understand what it’s like to make that leap of faith! The thrill and freedom of going places under my own steam is still with me.  Many years of cycling later, I was inspired to train as a cycling instructor to help others start or restart riding.  There are so many good reasons to cycle and my friendly, supportive, one-to-one tuition can give you the skills and confidence to get riding - and be a positive presence on our roads.”

I have skills, expertise and interests in sports and outdoor activities and I have proven experience of building rapport and engaging with trainees. I pride myself in motivating others to reach their full potential."

Before confirming the booking time and date, the instructors will ask you for a bit of information about your current cycling ability and a few other questions. This will help them to make a suitable suggestion for the location (i.e. a park, a quiet road, etc.).
