Start Cycling

Ever wondered what it would be like to ride a bike safely and confidently? You may have thought to yourself that you should start riding a bike or maybe you just want to learn to cycle for your next trip abroad.

Whoever you are, our Bikeability courses are just for you! With the necessary precautions, riding a bicycle is safer than you may think. Safety is our top priority and this is why we start from safe, quiet areas and progress to more challenging situations whilst still respecting road safety.

We promise that you’ll find our courses fun and useful, so join one of our courses and experience for yourself the boost in skill and confidence in your cycling. You will be guided by one of our certified instructors throughout the whole course. Each session is tailored to the needs of the learner and will start from the very basics all the way to more advanced techniques.



How do I sign up?

All you need to do is follow the steps highlighted further up this page.

 How long is the course?

This will vary depending on the learner’s ability. With each intake you are entitled to 3 sessions, but you may require additional sessions to cover the different levels of the course (Level 1, 2 & 3). The intake session is the one you will choose, and the other 2 sessions will be decided among your group and your instructor after each session.

How much does it cost?

The first 3 sessions are free though you are required to have €10 credit on your nextbike account in order to be accepted. This will be handled manually by our team.  

Do I need my own bike?

We will provide you with a bicycle at each training session, however if you are under 150cm we recommend sourcing your own bike as this will make it much easier for you to cycle.

What do I need for the training session?

All the bikes and safety equipment will be provided by nextbike Malta, free of charge. Therefore, all you need on the day is to be present, bring water and a light snack and any medication that you may need. Please also dress comfortably and avoid baggy clothing or sandals/flip flops as these might pose a danger whilst riding.

How old do I need to be?

The course is open to anyone who is over the age of 16.

What language will the courses be taught in?

The courses will be pre-dominantly delivered in English; however, the Maltese language may be used to clarify certain aspects of the course content.
