Wandsworth Council organises and provides cycle
training courses at no charge for children and adults
who live work or attend school in Wandsworth.
Sessions cover cycle safety, handling, road
procedure and the importance of wearing bright
clothing and helmets.
The council offer adult courses for candidates that
are 16 years or above and family courses for all ages,
but an appropriate adult would need to take part.
These courses usually consist of at least two
sessions, each two hours duration, the first of which
is carried out at venues offering a quiet, traffic-free
area to practice, continuing the next session of
supervised cycling on the public highway, depending
on the progress of the candidates. Further tuition
can usually be arranged with the tutor, directly.
Child cycle courses are run during school holidays
and candidates should be 10 years or above. Courses
normally consist of four sessions, each lasting two
hours from 10am – 12 noon or 1pm – 3pm.
