Royal Greenwich is committed to improving conditions for cycling and its cyclists. Free cycle training is available to anyone who lives, works or studies in the Royal Borough aged 7+, and it is actively encouraged to enable people to cycle more safely, more confidently and more often.


All courses are trainee-led, tailored to your current cycling ability and enabling you to get the most out of your cycling, whether you’re learning to ride for the first time, you want to start making local journeys on-road, you’d like to start commuting, or you’d like to start cycling as a family. Bikes and helmets are available on request from certain locations and you can always use your own bike as long as it’s roadworthy (tyres, brakes, chain all in good condition). All our cycle training follows the national standards which include Level 1 (practising skills in an off-road environment to develop control), Level 2 (on minor, quiet roads) and Level 3 (complex road situations).
