Cycling Training & Organised Rides

Haven’t cycled for a few years? Why not take part in some cycle training or an organised ride to boost your cycling skills before getting back on the saddle?

Free cycle training in Greenwich

Free one-to-one cycle training with fully qualified cycling instructors is available for any adult who lives, works or studies in Greenwich. Greenwich Council offers Bikeabliity courses, which is a cycle proficiency scheme designed to give cyclists the skills and confidence to ride their bikes on today’s roads. Greenwich Council has 15 professionally qualified and nationally accredited cycling teachers and offers cycle training and bike loan at different venues in the Borough.

The training is offered to three levels:

  • Level 1 teaches the participant to control the bike;
  • Level 2 starts on the road;
  • Level 3 tackles harder conditions and potentially the commute to work/daily activity.

To book yourself a place on the FREE adult cycle training, contact the Cycling Training Coordinator at cycle-training@greenwich.gov.uk.
