The Cycle Together Cycling Programs aim to coach and empower Londoners to cycle for leisure and transport.
Our free 4-week and 4-month cycling programs include in-person cycling coaching and weekly led bike rides. Alongside building new cycling skills, participants will be introduced to a vibrant and supportive cycling community.
Open to individuals aged 18 and over, both programs are tailor-made for those seeking to boost their cycling confidence in London, improve their health and fitness and build lifelong friendships.
The Cycle Together Cycling Programs are run in partnership with Cycle Confident, with grant funding from Sported UK.
