Are you a new cyclist feeling nervous about riding on London’s roads?
Or are you a confident cyclist who would like to help another rider experience the joy and freedom of getting about by bike?
Cycle Buddies puts new riders in touch with experienced riders. Buddies can then meet up and ride together – to work, to the shops or just to the park for a bit of practice!
Tell Me More
Following our experiences during lockdown we are seeing more people want to get around by bike, as it helps you stay healthy; it doesn’t fuel air pollution and it doesn’t cause congestion.
New and returning cyclists can sometimes be uncertain about cycling on London’s roads. Some are concerned about how they will manage with traffic, or how to cycle their commute, or maybe they just feel they need for some practice time on the road.
That’s where Cycle Buddies come in. Experienced riders can ride with you as you get used to your local streets, help you plan a journey, finding the right route for you, and give you techniques and moral support. We can help with any type of journey, whether that’s returning to the commute to work, or wanting to do more local journeys. For parents we can help you gain confidence so that you can support your children’s cycling.
How do I get involved?
For new and experienced cyclists please sign up here – it’s free. We will match you with a rider in your local area and give you advice on how to meet up and ride together.
