Newcastle City Council and cycle training group Bike Right have teamed up to offer free bicycle lessons to anyone over the age of 16.
The sessions are available to people living, working or studying in the city who cannot ride a bike, or would like to brush up their skills.
They include tips on how to get on a bike correctly, how to start and stop a journey, and how to signal to other road users.
According to Bike Right, dozens of people have already learnt to ride a bike under the new scheme.
Newcastle City Council hope the initiative will encourage more people to take up cycling and decrease the number of cars on the roads.
It is part of the council's wider plan to get people exercising more often and to reduce carbon emissions in the city.
