Summer holiday Bikeability

The summer holiday offers a chance for great value, fun days out by bike and there is plenty to do locally within cycling distance. If you need to build your confidence and practical skills or haven’t been on your bike because it has a puncture, book onto one of our Bikeablity sessions to get you set for a cycling summer.

The following sessions are available for children and parents and will take place at Thomas Lord Audley school in Monkwick on the 1 and 2 August.

If you live in or off Mile End road or Bergholt Road, separate Bikeability courses are being arranged as part of the Best Foot Forward project, please check the BFF website for details.

If we are over subscribed or you can’t make these dates we may organise further sessions later in the summer holidays depending on demand. If you would be interested please complete this form.
