Thinking about getting back on the bike?

A new scheme is starting in Chiswick in September to enable nervous cyclists who may like to get back on their bikes to cycle with their kids. Hounslow Cycling Campaign, in conjunction with the London Borough of Hounslow and Ealing Council, has organised accredited trainers to provide the classes.

The pilot scheme – completely free – will run over four Saturdays, starting on 15th September, in Chiswick. There will be two adult-centred classes (2 hours each), followed by two classes for adults and children. Tabards will be supplied, bikes and helmets are being sourced to try out. Lessons will include safety, courtesy and road legislation. The course will be fun and safe. For those who complete the course there will be rewards and gifts (mainly for the kids!)

Courses are tailored to the participants. The trainers are accredited with the Department of Transport and have carried out thousands of hours of training, with adults (eg. lorry drivers), primary and secondary school pupils. Hounslow Cycling Campaign hopes that this will become a regular feature, so if you fancy getting back in the saddle and can’t make these dates, get in touch with them anyway.
