Havering Council has partnered with Cycle Confident to offer free cycle training across the borough.

Four Bikewise hubs opened on Sunday 23 July and will stay open until Sunday 3 September.

The hubs offer training for all ages and abilities – from learn to ride sessions for children to advanced bike maintenance workshops. Each hub will have some bikes that can be used for training, including both adult and children’s bikes.

Councillor Osman Dervish, Cabinet Member for Environment and Community Safety, said:

“I’m delighted that we’re opening four cycle hubs across the borough so that residents can learn cycle safety and bike repair skills.

“Cycling can be a great way to get fit and save money, so don’t miss this opportunity to get on your bike.”

The bike hubs will open in myplace in Harold Hill, Rainham Village Primary School, Hornchurch Sports Centre, and the Thames Chase Forest Trust in Upminster.
