Cycling is a healthy, low cost, environmentally friendly way to travel, as well as to keep fit. Sessions are available 7 days a week, and can be arranged at a time and place to suit you. Hackney offers the following free cycle skills activities to everyone who lives, works or studies in the borough:


Cycle Skills: Get tailored training at a level suited to your needs, or book a lesson for the family (with up to three participants)! Choose from Basic (off-road environment), Urban (quiet local roads) or Advanced (complex junctions and busy roads).

Please note that due to current social distancing measures we are unable to teach people to cycle who are complete beginners. We hope to resume this service soon.
