Why?

Cycling is a fantastic experience. The wind in the hair, the freedom it creates, the health benefits, and the savings in travel costs. But more importantly, it is enjoyable! So why not cycle?? Whether you fancy hitting the road with Mark Cavendish, or the track with Laura Trott, or just take the grandchildren for a picnic in the park, cycling can provide you with it all.

Where?

Road? Track? Mountain? Park? Really, it is up to you! Are you competitive or social? Do you like being with other cyclists or on your own? Choices, choices. It's a very personal experience, but one thing is guaranteed; once you start you will want to keep going!

What next?

Get your bike out of the shed (how about a Dr Bike to check it over?) or pop to a shop and buy one, and then come and join us! It really is that simple!

Become a cycling instructor

If you love cycling, you might consider becoming a cycling instructor. Whether you would like to make it a full-time job or you just want to pass on some skills at your local school or youth club, undertaking the National Standard Instructor training is the first step.

Kingston is the only London borough recognised as an instructor training organisation (ITO). Since 2007, we have trained more than 300 instructors for local authorities and independent providers.

You can read more about our training here, and learn more about being a Bikeability Instructor here

Get involved?

Cycling is a fantastic way to exercise, travel, and enjoy the great outdoors. Wind in the hair (under your helmet of course), sunglasses on, and a picnic in your bag. However, not everyone sees it this way.

Therefore, CycleKingston is appealing to you to share the good, the bad (and the ugly?!) We want to hear your cycling experiences, news and showcase success stories along the way too.

If you have material you think we should feature on the website, drop us an email on info@cyclekingston.net with the information and some images and we'll do our best to feature them.
