Dockless electric bike scheme arrives in London

The first Dockless “park anywhere” electric bikes have arrived in London in the first mass-market scheme of its kind.

Backed by Uber and Google, the operator Lime, has beaten competitors such as Chinese cycling giant Mobike to start a pay as you ride ebike scheme. The ebikes have a top speed of nearly 15mph, and hire prices will be higher than riding a Santander bike.

Lime plans for 1,000 by the end of the year, with potentially more boroughs to follow. Read the full Evening Standard artice here


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.

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 with the information and some images and we'll do our best to feature them.
