Cycle Skills

If you live in London, you are entitled to free Cycle Skills training where you live, work or study. I deliver free sessions for Cycle Confident predominantly in Hackney and Westminster, but also sometimes further afield in Southwark and Lambeth.  To apply for free cycle training, visit the Transport for London website to sign up.

If you would like to hire me for a paid private session, please fill in the form on the Contact page. Sessions are either £25 for 1 hour, or £40 for a 2 hour session.

Cycle Skills sessions are tailored to your needs and ability, and follow the 'National Standard for Cycling' syllabus from basic handling, through introducing you to cycling on the road, through to advanced situations on busier roads.

cycle instructor

I am available as a freelance hire across a wide range of instructor roles, both as a lead and a co-instructor.

I have organised and run group sessions including 'all-ability' (with Pedal Power and Bikeworks) and balance bike training, coordinated the successful delivery of one-to-one adult cycle skills training, led group rides, and work in schools across London for Cycle Confident, London Borough of Islington and Bikeworks delivering training to pupils. (Most children will be offered cycle training at school in year 5 or 6, if not, ask your child's school why not).

If you are keen to hire me or just to know more about my skills and experience, get in touch via the contact page.

Mechanic services

I deliver 'Dr Bike' sessions alongside other mechanics for Cycle Confident, London Borough of Islington and Bikeworks. I have also delivered 'Bikeability Plus' maintenance sessions for children participating in school based cycle training, and community outreach maintenance training for London Borough of Islington.

Alongside my City and Guilds qualification which has equipped me with the skills to work on most common modern bicycles, I am experienced in more esoteric mechanic skills such as servicing Sturmey Archer hub gears, Brompton folding bicycles and Moulton's.

If you are interested in employing my skills and experience, either for a call out job, maintenance or restoration, or a 'Dr Bike' session, please contact me.
