Do you sit in traffic watching cyclists passing you by and wish you could swap your four wheels for two? What’s holding you back? Do you know how to cycle competently but need a little help with your confidence to consider using your bike as an alternative option for your daily commute or other journeys? Help is at hand!


Our My Journey team will be running a training course for adults who want to increase their confidence on busier roads and learn how to cycle safely in traffic. 


Our Bikeability training for adults will take place on 11 October, 10am-3pm, with members of our my journey team meeting participants at the bike shed at the Council Offices at Shute End in Wokingham, located at the back of the car park area.


“Our My Journey team have a tremendous track record for helping both children and adults learn to ride”, said Cllr Pauline Jorgensen, executive member for highways and transport.


“I am thrilled to see that they are now reaching out to those adults who need a few pointers to help them use their bikes for longer journeys that may involve busier roads”. 


By the end the of course participants can expect to have learnt how to ride assertively, maintain suitable riding positions, pass queuing traffic and be able to use junctions controlled by traffic lights as well as multi-lane roads and roundabouts.  They will also be shown how to use cycle infrastructure and bus lanes, negotiate vehicles that pull in ahead and ride with other cyclists.


There is a £10 charge for this course and booking is essential so to register your interest please email myjourney@wokingham.gov.uk .
