Free cycle training sessions across Tower Hamlets

Whether you're a complete beginner that would like to start cycling or a regular cyclist looking to brush up on advanced skills, our instructors will tailor a cycle training session to suit you.

Our fully trained instructors follow the nationally recognised Bikeability syllabus, starting with an off-road assessment of skills for all participants and then building from there. We can also offer support planning and riding a route to work or school, if that is your cycling aim.

The 1-2-1 sessions will last for 1 hour and can be booked at a mutually convenient time. Please allow for additional time for setting up the session. Unless otherwise discussed with our instructor, sessions begin at our hub in Victoria Park, where we are able to lend a range of bikes and helmets if you do not have one. 

We ask riders to confirm that they and people they live with have been symptom free for 14 days.  Additionally when confirming the booking please let us know if you are in a vulnerable group.

Based on local Government’s latest advice and guidance of COVID-19 we ask all riders to be proactive in ensuring social distance of 2 meters and to have their own Personal Protective Equipment (including gloves and masks).  It is important to take steps to ensure riders & instructors safety. If you do not have PPE, we can provide some at our Cycling Hub in Victoria Park.  When confirming the booking with your instructor please let them know if you are in need of this.

If you have, or have had, a fever or cough, have been close to someone with these symptoms, or if any of your cohabitants are ill or self-isolating, unfortunately you will not be able to have training.

Our instructors will meet you in the park and begin by assessing your cycling level. The sessions will be tailored to suit your cycling capabilities and needs.
