Dr Bike

Fancy a check up?
Kingston Council have a team of 'Doctors' just for your bikes! The Doctors will comprehensively check any bike brought to them, do minor repairs and give advice on more major work that may need to be done, as well as any general maintenance.

Where possible, we coordinate Dr Bike sessions with the local police Safer Neighbourhoods Teams, who can security mark bikes against theft and give advice on bike security. To find out when the next Dr Bike event is, check our Calendar of Events where you can also find out more about our cycle training, maintenance classes and social rides.

And if you are interested in holding a Dr Bike session for your workplace or school, please contact:
The Smarter  Travel Team
Tel: 020 8547 5002 or email: cycling@kingston.gov.uk

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.

You can read more about our training here, and learn more about being a Bikeability Instructor here

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.
