Portsmouth Road Cycle Lane fully open!

The Portsmouth Road cycle lane is now fully open and to celebrate the fact, the Go Cycle team will be at Guildhall II from 9am to 5pm next Wednesday, November 16.

Feel free to drop by and have your bike checked over by qualified Dr Bikes and pick up cycling tips, free bike lights and puncture repair kits to ride safely this winter. 

The consultations for the next three routes, Kingston to Kingston Vale, Kingston to Tolworth and Kingston to New Malden, close next Thursday (17 November 2016).

The team, who have been busy touring local schools, Kingston University and community centres, promoting our Go Cycle programme will also be able to pass on information about the proposals for new cycling routes and improvements to footpaths and crossings for pedestrians.

Become a cycling instructor

If you love cycling, you might consider becoming a cycling instructor. Whether you would like to make it a full-time job or you just want to pass on some skills at your local school or youth club, undertaking the National Standard Instructor training is the first step.

Kingston is the only London borough recognised as an instructor training organisation (ITO). Since 2007, we have trained more than 300 instructors for local authorities and independent providers.

Get involved?

Cycling is a fantastic way to exercise, travel, and enjoy the great outdoors. Wind in the hair (under your helmet of course), sunglasses on, and a picnic in your bag. However, not everyone sees it this way.

Therefore, CycleKingston is appealing to you to share the good, the bad (and the ugly?!) We want to hear your cycling experiences, news and showcase success stories along the way too.

If you have material you think we should feature on the website, drop us an email on info@cyclekingston.net with the information and some images and we'll do our best to feature them.
