Beginner’s Training

Never say never

Get tailored training for beginners.

Think you’re a beginner? It’s probably too early to head straight for the streets of Brussels. That's perfectly normal. One thing at a time. The Bike Experience team has come up with a special course tailored to the pace of beginner cyclists. We’ll share tips and tricks, suitable routes and elements of the highway code. You’ll then be supervised by professionals to put all of this into practice.

Before leaving, we have a snack together so you can share the experience that you’ve just had. You will have the opportunity to ask our trainers any questions you might have and to learn more about taking part in the training sessions offered by Bike Experience.

To finish, you can even leave with one of our bike free of charge for two weeks. To do this, all you need to do is let us know before the vent by email or by phoning us on +32 2 318 84 07.

Don’t forget...

  • In order to participate in this training session, you’ll need to have taken Pro Velo's ‘Beginner's Course for Adults’, or at least know how to keep your balance and ride in a straight line.
  • Bring your own bike or let us know if you’d like to borrow one for the occasion.
  • Check the weather forecast and dress accordingly. Flexible and comfortable clothing recommended.
  • To sponsor your friends, colleagues or family to take part in one of our events. This might give you the chance to win one of our bike prizes. And maybe they’d like to move better themselves as well.

Biker's words

My bike is a form of transport that allows me to exercise at the same time. When you’re a mum and you work full-time, finding time to exercise isn’t easy. So I said to myself, why not kill two birds with one stone - travel while exercising. And the risk really paid off, as now I make almost all of my journeys by bike.
