Cycling is a great way to get around London – it’s good exercise and for short journeys it’s often quicker than taking the car. And to keep everyone safe during the pandemic, we’re being encouraged to cycle more.
But getting onto a bike for the first time can be daunting, particularly in a busy city. And if you haven’t cycled for a long time, it can also feel like a big step to get back behind the handlebars.
Fortunately, there’s plenty of advice and support available to help you become more confident and develop your cycling skills. Local councils, cycling organisations and Transport for London all offer free resources to boost your cycling know-how.
Cycling in the capital has boomed since the start of lockdown, and with new cycle routes opening up there’s never been a better time to head off on two wheels.
See you in the cycle lane,
