NEW Bankside Bike Train

Jump on a guided bike ride to Bankside to practise your commute and build confidence
Amandeep Kellay

We’ve heard from many of you that commuting on public transport is a key concern as you plan your return to Bankside. We also know that many of you like to cycle but feel a little bit nervous on London’s streets. With that in mind we’ve launched the Bankside Bike Train. Join the ride from various London train stations* and follow qualified instructors through selected quiet routes to Bankside, and back, to practise your commute. Just bring your bike and helmet (helmet is not compulsory but recommended), and high vis vests will be provided.

Book onto your local route via the Cycle Confident pages below. All rides are free for Bankside employees. Routes have been risk assessed.
