Your wheels are rolling, the breeze is tingling your face and the city is gliding by, giving you a whole new view of London – you’re on a city cycle ride. 🚴♀️ 🚴♂️
We don’t want it to be more than you can handle-bar, so to help you get to grips with your wheels, and the city, we’ve got a few useful things for you to know….👇
Learn how to cycle for free
Everyone was a beginner once so whether you’re a total newbie or you need to refresh your cycle skills, you can get free cycle training with our online Cycle Skills course. 👏
Plus, complete all four modules and you’ll receive 15% off Halfords own-brand cycle lights, locks or helmets. 🔒
Take folded cycles on all our services
Cycling for your commute? If you’ve got a folded cycle, you can take it anywhere, at any time on all our transport services. 🚆 🚌 🚊
If you’ve got a non-folded cycle, you can take it on some services at specific times. 🚲
Use cycle parking all over the city
You don’t need to tyre yourself out looking for somewhere to park your cycle.
You can choose from over 20,000 cycle parking spaces at stations, 7,200 cyclehangers and more than 150,000 spaces on streets across London. 🙌

Cycling is for everyone
There are amazing charities in London who support disabled people to cycle, including Wheels for Wellbeing.
You can join cycling sessions on adapted cycles to help keep you fit and independent.
You don’t need your own cycle
Since 2010, 5.9 million people have used Santander Cycles to travel 300,000,000 km – that’s nearly three return trips to Mars! 👽
So, if you don’t have your own cycle, you can hire a Santander Cycle from as little as £2! Plus, to get pedalling even quicker, you can download the Santander Cycles app. Join its London Riders scheme and you could win prizes! 🏆
