Adult group cycle skills

These sessions give new cyclists (aged 18+) the opportunity to learn how to ride a bike in a beginners course then build their control skills with an off-road basic cycle skills course in a relaxed and enjoyable group environment.

We also run This Girl Can group sessions for women aged 14+.

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 Finsbury Park and Haverstock School.

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.

Beginners – learning to ride

If you are a complete beginner, you are not alone! Many people are in the same position as you and we aim to get you cycling within two sessions.  Our upcoming beginners courses (and booking links) are listed below.  To see our full range of future courses please visit our general booking page.
