Free Cycle Training
Hounslow Council offers free Bikeability cycle training to all residents, employees and students within the borough.
Bikeability is the Government-recognised national standard for cycle safety, aiming to improve cycle skills for all. Our cycle training is delivered by accredited instructors from London Bike Hub and there are a range of courses on offer to suit all ages and abilities.
Different level training sessions take place at the following times every Saturday:
Level 1 training, 09:30 - 11:00: For those who can balance and pedal, level 1 training will allow you to work on skills such as signaling, braking and manoeuvring. This is based in a traffic free area to build up your confidence before going out on roads for the first time.
Level 2 training, 11:00 - 12:30: Aimed at those who have a little road-riding experience and want to improve their confidence and safety. We begin on quiet roads, and progress to busier areas as suited to the group
Level 3 training, 12:30 - 14:00: Suitable for more confident cyclists, our advanced training occurs on busier roads to help you safely tackle more complex features such as roundabouts and multi-lane junctions.
