The sessions have been designed to give riders the tools they need to travel safely and we’re looking forward to helping more people experience the benefits of greener, affordable transport options.”

    Jim Blakemore, CEO and Co-Founder of Bikeworks said: “Bikeworks are thrilled to be working in partnership with Lime in 2023. Over the past two years we have written, delivered and refined a training syllabus for both e-scooter and e-cycles. These courses are designed to provide practical experience both on and off road to upskill those looking to integrate new ways to move around the capital.”
