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.
Cycle Training takes place fortnightly from 8th November 2016. Use the events page to keep up to date with cycle training dates.
Different level training sessions take place at the following times:
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 signalling, 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 13:00-14:30: 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.
These training sessions are free, subsidised by Transport for London and Hounslow Borough Council.
