Southwark


The London Borough of Southwark is an authority deeply committed to developing cycling and has ear-marked £4m to make the borough one of the most bike-friendly in the capital over the next three years. Not only is cycling an environmentally-friendly way to travel, especially commuting, it also promotes a healthy, energetic lifestyle. Southwark Council provides cycle training as part of its cycling strategy. All courses are fully tailored to ability and are invaluable for beginners through to daily commuters. Anybody who lives, works or studies in the borough is entitled to our services and we actively encourage the use of them.

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).
