Here are some tips for using cycling infrastructure — cycling 'etiquette' and considerate behavour towards other cyclists and pedestrians.

If you live in London aren are not sure how to use the infrastructure (particularly the new type of Dutch-style roundabout and two stage right turn), why not book a training session with us. A cycling instructor can cycle with you around the infrastructure and explain the best way to use them.

Notes for Editors

Cycle Training UK, a worker's co-operative, exists to promote cycling as a form of transport. We love cycling. Since 1998 we have trained over 80,000 people to cycle skilfully and confidently on Greater London roads. All our instructors are permanent members of staff and undergo continuous rigorous training and professional development.

As well as delivering urban cycle training we offer maintenance sessions, instructor courses and driver training. We are acknowledged as leaders in the provision of instructor training - many other cycle training organisations and Bikeability schemes use us to train their staff and health check their schemes.

Businesses across London choose to work with us to enable their employees to commute to work. We offer bespoke packages to organisations including urban training, maintenance masterclasses and lunchtime cycle safely seminars.

We are a City & Guilds approved centre offering Cycle Mechanics as well as 3 tiers of maintenance training courses.

Cycle Training UK was the first provider to offer on-road cycle awareness training to professional drivers and continues to pioneer, for example recently developing an awareness programme for driving instructors.
