Cycle Training Waiting List


Whether you are a first time rider or a regular cyclist looking to improve your skills, we provide fully subsidised tailored training courses to suit your individual abilities and goals. Subsidised by Transport for London and subject to availability and funding. Limited to 2 sessions per person.
These are the types of session that we provide:

Basic cycle skills

Learn to cycle with a free session tailored to you. You will practice in a safe, off-road environment with a fully qualified instructor. In a session, you will learn the basics, build skills and gain confidence to navigate around your local area. If you are a complete beginner, we can lend you a training bicycle.

Road confidence cycle skills

Improve your cycling skills and confidence with a free session tailored to you. You will start in a safe, off-road environment to refresh your cycling technique and develop new skills before moving on to practice on quiet roads. Your qualified instructor will support you throughout to help you cycle more confidently.

Advanced cycle skills

Perfect your cycling techniques with a free one-to-one session from a fully qualified trainer. Improve your performance when dealing with complex junctions, heavy traffic or cycling at night and receive assurance that you are cycling efficiently and effectively.

Family cycle skills

Gain confidence and learn skills to cycle as a family with a free family cycling session. In the session a qualified instructor will teach you how to cycle with children, using quiet routes and parks. These sessions offer the opportunity to build on or prepare for Bikeability skills taught in schools.

Our professional cycling instructors are nationally accredited and available Monday to Saturday to meet your child at a time and place to suit you.  Training sessions are tailored to your needs and last between one and two hours depending on your proficiency and what you want the lesson to cover. They are fully funded by TfL and you can have up to four free sessions but please note, there is a £10 administration charge for any cancellations within 2 working days of each session.
