Thursday is national Cycle to Work day and the council offers a range of support and free sessions to help you choose a more active and cheaper commute to work.
Whether you’re an experienced rider or thinking about starting to commute by bike, you can get free one-on-one support tailored to you. The council provides free practical cycle sessions to anyone living, working or studying in the borough to help you feel more confident on the road, regardless of your ability.
“Thanks to this course I have replaced my daily tube journey with cycling. Without the free training, I would not have had the confidence to commute by bike in London.” – Tracey
“Even for a reasonably experienced commuter cyclist there was much to learn.” – Clay
Next week, Wednesday 10 September, get free bike marking, safety tips and maintenance from 10am-2pm near City Hall - outside John Lewis Head Office, Victoria Street/junction with Carlisle Place.
With our Dr Bike sessions, throughout the year, experienced cyclists and mechanics check everything on your bike from wheels, brakes, gears and tyre pressure to lights, racks, pedals, saddles and more. By the end, your bike will feel loved and cared for. Look out for these by the side of the road.
Earlier this year almost 2000 people completed our cycling consultation and we will be using that feedback to influence our final strategy to be launched in November. We’ll be relaunching our cycling webpages soon with lots more information and tips on cycling in Westminster.
