TfL encourages London cycling for Local Bike Shop Day

Posted on in Business News, Cycles News

The bicycles-4328493_1920Transport for London blog, Experience London, is about showcasing the best our Capital has to offer. They've scoured the streets above and below ground to bring you the best - from the big attractions and hidden gems to local favourites.

In celebration of Local Bike Shop Day, TfL have shared the following blog posts with the aim of showing new cyclists all that London has to offer.

How to repair a cycle - Meet Jenni. She grew up in San Diego, California but later moved to London. She turned her love for cycling into a career by starting the London Bike Kitchen - an organisation that helps people repair their own cycles, with the help of mechanics, to get them back on the road.

Expert tips for new cyclists - Meet Jacqui. She started cycling on her paper round at 10 year's old. Today, she's a London cycle instructor, cycle buddy, and runs free social rides for British Cycling's Breeze program. Check out her tips for getting started, staying safe and feeling confident cycling in London.

How I mastered my cycling anxiety - Meet Aisling. When they moved to London in 2014, they didn't think cycling was an option. It was intimidating - something that other people did. Hear how a new role and encouragement from friends and London's cycling community helped Aisling find confidence as a disabled cyclist.
