  • Five ways to access cycle training for children

    Cycle to School Week is an online campaign, powered by Bikeability UK, that aims to encourage families across the UK to use pedal power to get to school. 

    Not only are we the recognised provider for free Bikeability Cycle Training in:

    • Hammersmith and Fulham
    • Tower Hamlets

    But we also deliver training to schools. 

    If you’re a parent, carer or teacher – we’ve highlighted 5 ways you can access school cycle training to build confidence in your young ones.

    1) Come along to our free family cycle training sessions at Chrisp Street Community Cycles 

    We run activities for children, families, and adults and for a whole range of abilities. This includes ‘Learn to Ride’ for complete beginners, skill sessions, and social rides for those with more experience.

    2) Get active as a family or group in London’s parks
