Pedal Ready’s team of NZQA certified instructors deliver cycle skills compliant with Waka Kotahi NZTA's Cycle Skills Guidelines.

Pedal Ready was New Zealand's first BikeReady accredited cycle skills provider.

What instructors do

Pedal Ready instructors teach cycle skills to school aged children and adults. In a school setting, our instructors are responsible for groups of up to fifteen children teaching the core outcomes for Grade One.  The ratio for Grade Two, on road instruction, is no more than ten students with two instructors.  New instructors are mentored by experienced instructors.

Instructor training

If you enjoy teaching and are confident on a bike we’d like you to consider training with us. No other experience is necessary. Initially all new instructors attend a BikeReady Instructor Training course. Participants learn how to plan, prepare and deliver sessions for Complete Beginners, Grades One and Two and also  learn about risk management.
