> Here they are called learn to ride centres and look like this:

I'd say that term applies to not just the marked cycle paths but also
administrative buildings,
toilets or whatever.  Also "learn to ride" is a specialized usage of a
general term which
could equally apply to motorcycling or horse riding.  If you weren't
already familiar with
the specialized usage in the UK (I wasn't) then it would be confusing.

I can't think of any appropriate term for the marked, paved area itself,
and google didn't
give me any ideas.

The best I can come up with as an English description is bicycle training
track or bicycle
training circuit.

There was a proposal at
(abandoned) for amenity=training with a new training tag and several
proposed values
such as training=driving.  Many of the proposed values for training seem
better served
by some sort of educational tagging (you're taught art rather than trained
in it), but
maybe amenity=training deserves to be resurrected along with
training=cycling.  Apply
it to the area enclosing the track and add highways within it if aerial
tracing gives you that level of detail.
