Royal Greenwich Cycling skills programmes
One-to-One CYCLE SKILLS
On behalf of Royal Greenwich, Bikeworks is able to provides anyone (over seven years of age) that lives, works or studies within Greenwich with up to 4 hours of free cycle skills.
Sessions take place in different locations around the borough, and are tailored to suit everyone’s needs, regardless of age, confidence level, or ability. We have bikes available to borrow free of charge, as well as helmets and high vis vests.
We have broken our training down in Greenwich into four different training streams:
1. LEARN TO RIDE A BIKE
A professional cycling instructor will support you to get riding in a safe environment away from roads and traffic. It can take just 2 hours to go from never having ridden before to having a real sense of confidence on a bike! Bikes and helmets are FREE to borrow if needed.
