    Question Rider training Wimbledon/Putney area - recommendations?

    Can anyone recommend a good riding school somewhere in the Wimbledon and Putney area for an ab-initio student (she has a full car licence, but has never ridden a bike)?

    She wants to do CBT to begin with, probably in the autumn / winter (preferably at a weekend) followed by an intensive Direct Access course in the Spring. I would rather have a recommendation than leave her in the hands of a Google search - does anyone have experience of schools in this sort of area please?

    Thanks in anticipation,

    Mike

    A girl i work with wanted to ride a bike - never ridden one before
    She did a training course with Ducati at Vauxhall -
    She passed
    She got a Monster
    She wanted more
    So she bought a 899 Panagale
    She got the buzz and has just bought another 1299 Panagale
    She then decided to start up her own blog to help women bikers with tips

    enjoy
    she is one cool gal -

    Many thanks Gazzabart - I've contacted Maria and she highly recommends Metropolis, so Catherine's looking at options this weekend.

    I have told her she will lose any credibility if she doesn't take the Ducati course...
