For more information contact ana.ramirez@poplarharca.co.uk

Join Ana’s cycling training sessions until you feel confident to cycle on safe roads and join local rides. Later on you can join longer rides such as the London Freecycle!

If you are interested in learning how to cycle again, or start from scratch, Community Cycle Training can offer you an opportunity to learn using safe roads and progression from shorter to longer rides, as part of their two hour training on the second Wednesday of each month.


These sessions are provided through the partnership among Bike Works, Poplar HARCA, Sustrans and LBTH. They are FREE and open to adults of all cycling abilities. Instructors change according to availability. Our meeting point is the Poplar HARCA employment and training office and training takes place at the Poplar Recreation Ground.


Meet some of the instructors:

Isis and Simon are two of the instructors that lead the training sessions. They are pleased to see women and mothers who previously couldn’t ride but are now enjoying the benefits that cycling brings to them. They advocate cycling as being healthy in every sense- ‘it’s not just an activity that improves your physical fitness but improves your mental wellbeing too. It’s an alternative transport which gives you the freedom to travel without needing to use buses or the underground, and for us, seeing someone doing something they haven’t done before, and gaining that as a new skill, is very rewarding.’
