Adult group cycle skills

Please check out our booking page to see if we have any adult learn to ride sessions happening at the moment.

Islington Council instructors will help you progress through the National Standards for cycle training.  Bicycles and helmets (should you wish to wear one) are available for you to use.  Learning as a group is great fun and our instructors are patient and encouraging. Our courses take place at Haverstock School, Hugh Myddelton School and Finsbury Park.

Anyone who lives, works or studies in Islington is entitled to attend one beginners course and one basic cycle skills course. After this, and once you can confidently control a bike, you are entitled to two free one-to-one sessions.
