Specialist Cycle Skills

The Kingston cycle training team runs specialist 1:1 Cycle skills activities in local schools under the Aiming High programme in association with Achieving for Children (AfC).

The training is offered in small group ratios to disabled children and young people who are unable to learn how to ride a bike in a large group and cannot therefore benefit from the standard Bikeability Level 1&2 courses. These sessions are usually planned during school time as this allows a Learning Support Assistant to attend. 

Funding eligibility criteria for children accessing the short service is as follows:

  • Children need to fulfil the DDA (Disability Discrimination Act) definition of SEN      
  • Children must attend a school in Kingston or Richmond 
  • Children must be aged between 9-12 years

Training is available on a first come first served basis and subject to availability.

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.
