Cycling in London can be scary and intimidating and you might want some help building up your basic cycle skills and confidence. We hope to bring back our four-week course in the spring with just that in mind. Whether you haven't cycled since you were a kid or feel like your basic cycle skills could use some work this course will help you to Get Out Cycling with confidence!

Session 2: Recap of session 1, how to start and finish an on-road journey, how to turn left and right on different types of road, cycling on quiet roads
Session 3: Recap of session 2, U turns and more turns! Cycling on slightly more busy roads, discussion on route planning for the last session
