Camden Council offer free cycle skills training for all adults and children. From complete beginners to advanced cyclists.
Free children's cycling courses are held during the school holidays. Free adult group courses for beginners and improvers are offered on many weekends. Some are away from traffic and others on quiet roads.
Free, individual cycle skills sessions to practice safer cycling in road traffic are available for advanced levels of experience. And anyone can join at the open-access after-school cycling sessions. These are on Mondays and Thursdays after school at Cumberland Market and Richard Cobden School.
Adults who are thinking of buying a bike but are not quite sure, can borrow a bike for four weeks. This is with Camden's free Try-A-Bike scheme. Proof of ID and advance deposit needed.
