Route via Battersea Park
This route will utilise some of the East/West Cycle Superhighway
Commuting by bike for the first time can be intimidating, which is why the London Cycling Campaign is teaming up with Cycle to Work Day on Wednesday, 14 September. We know that the more people who are cycling in London, the safer and more enjoyable it can be. We want to get more people trying it out and finding their cycling feet, so we can see a happier, healthier and less polluted city for everyone.
To take part in a BikeTube you should have experience of cycling on roads and be at Bikeablity level 2 or 3. Where possible the routes will be through parks, back streets or on Cycle Superhighways but may include some busy roads.
If you have not cycled for a few years or are new to cycling we strongly recommend that you take up cycle training before the event – this is available free from your local London borough.
You must also bring your own bike and make sure it is roadworthy and has working lights. We will check bikes at the start of the ride and if the ride leader decides your bike is unsafe you will not be able to join the ride. Make sure you pump up your tyres, oil your chain and check your brakes and gears work.
If it’s wet make please make sure you pack waterproofs or have a change of clothes in your bag for when you get to work.
We look forward to seeing you!
