Free Cycle Training Sessions for Staff *EXPIRED*
30 September 2013
*PLEASE NOTE THESE SESSIONS ARE NOW EXPIRED*
As a result of QM participating in the Barclays Cycling Superhighways Scheme we benefit from staff cycle training sessions. These sessions are provided by Cycle Confident and are available to all staff.
Who are the sessions for?
1 to 1 sessions cater for all cyclists – from complete beginners through to experienced riders who need to refresh their road skills. Cycle Confident instructors will assess your riding ability and progressively build on this. By working through the National Standards Cycle Confident instructors will help you cycle safely and with confidence on the roads. Once competent, they can help plan the best routes for you to travel to work, to friends’ houses or wherever you want to go. They can also incorporate these routes into your lessons.
When do they happen?
All the individual sessions are planned around a date and time convenient to you. When you sign up for a session you can indicate a preferred date, time and meet location. Cycle Confident has instructors all over London and, as a result, the start location can be anywhere in London and is not just restricted to your work office address. Once a booking has been made an instructor will be in touch with the trainee within 3 working days to confirm the session details.
How do Staff book?
- Email the Sustainability Team to obtain a voucher code for the free training.
- Register on the Cycle Confident website. Upon doing so, if the registration confirmation email doesn't arrive, check whether it's been filtered into a spam folder. If it really hasn't arrived, send Cycle Confident an email and they will activate your account.
- Having registered, you can book your individual session. When booking, in the subsidised prices section please use the voucher code provided to you by The Sustainability Tea this will ensure your session is registered as free of charge. Should you need a bicycle for the session, Cycle Confident can organise a Barclays Hire bicycle to use. The meeting point for the session will most likely be the most convenient docking station.
- Enjoy the ride!
- All training sessions must be used by 31 March 2014 and there is no limit on the number of training sessions provided up until this date.
