Blue Bermondsey Bicycle Bonus

Posted on Jan 24, 2018 by Adrian

Cycle Training UK will be providing free cycling courses to Blue Bermondsey BID Members

Thanks to funding from The Blue Bermondsey Business Improvement District (BID), Cycle Training UK can offer Free Cycle Training and Free Cycle Maintenance Courses to employees of member businesses.

FREE Cycle Skills Session

Employees who work for a member of the Blue Bermondsey BID can have up to two hours of Cycle Skills Training with a CTUK experienced and qualified instructor. The Cycle Skills Session is a one to one session, so designed around each individual rider, whether a complete beginner or a seasoned cycle commuter. To find out more and to Book click HERE.

FREE Cycle Maintenance Courses

As well as cycling skills courses, Blue Bermondsey is also funding Maintenance Courses for BID members. There are three one day courses available:

Introductory Maintenance for the complete bike mechanic beginner.  A great foundation course covering the basics including, an introduction to tools, adjusting your bike, preventative care, fixing a puncture and adjusting brake blocks. To find out more and to Book click HERE.

Basic Maintenance for those who are a little more confident tinkering with their bike.  With this one day in the workshop, riders work on their own bike changing brake blocks, indexing gears and splitting a chain. To find out more and to Book click HERE.

Brompton - A course specifically for the classic folding bike that includes the much-dreaded but actually quite easy rear wheel removal! To find out more and to Book click HERE.

Dr Bike in Blue Bermondsey

Blue Bermondsey is also funding Dr Bikes Clinics providing FREE bike checks at The Biscuit Factory 12-4pm on the last Wednesday of the month. The next three are:

Wednesday 27 June 2018

Wednesday 25 July 2018

Wednesday 29 August

Thanks to the generosity of Blue Bermondsey it is hoped that more people will cycle, making the Business Improvement District an even nicer place to work.

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.
