Transport for London (TfL) have launched a new online course, to equip Londoners with the skills to cycle safely in London.
As more and more Londoners turn to cycling to travel around the city, it’s important they have access to the skills and learning they need to cycle safely and confidently.
The free online course is for both experienced and new cyclists, to get you back on your bike and to help you travel more safely.
The course is comprised of four modules and includes, how to carry out pre-ride checks on your cycle, how to cycle safely on the road, and cycling with children.
To start putting the skills you’ve learnt into practice, everyone who completes the online Cycle Skills course will be sent a free Santander Cycles code which entitles you to a free 24-hour access period with all journeys under 30 minutes included.
We will have bike parking available on all sites.
If you can’t get here this year …
Everyone’s health and wellbeing is paramount so please don’t travel to the festival if you think that doing so would put you or anyone else at risk. But don’t worry! Many events will be streamed on our YouTube channel, and we’ll be back again next year! Subscribe now.
Uber Boat by Thames Clippers offers a safe, socially-distanced and enjoyable way to travel in the fresh air between our sites at Canary Wharf, Greenwich, North Greenwich for Greenwich Peninsula, Woolwich, and Royal Wharf for the Royal Docks. Bikes are permitted on board at no extra cost, and all boats are wheelchair accessible.
The River Bus operator is also running a ‘Park and Glide’ scheme in partnership with The O2, so you can park at the peninsula and hop on the boat from £18 a ticket, or from £33 for a family of 1 adult + 3 kids (aged 5-15 years. 4s and under travel for free as standard). You can also use contactless or Oyster to pay as you go, or purchase in-app.
London’s only cable car runs between North Greenwich station and Royal Victoria DLR station, with views of the peninsula, the docks and beyond across the river. You can take bikes on for no extra charge, and it’s limited to one person or household per pod. The Emirates Air Line has step-free access and is accessible to most wheelchairs and mobility scooters.
