Lewisham Cyclists is launching a Cycle Buddies scheme. This will pair new bike riders with more experienced cyclists, to help build their confidence.
We’ve been running an informal scheme for a while – now we’re expanding it and making it easier to request a buddy.
Many people have started cycling in recent months, to avoid using public transport or getting stuck in traffic. Lewisham Cyclists wants to support anyone who wants to start riding a bike, or ride more.
A Cycle Buddy can help you:
- find quiet local streets, where you can practice and build confidence
- find and try out new routes to work or your local shops
- feel safer and more comfortable cycling in traffic
- find a safe route for your child to cycle to school
Experienced cyclists can also volunteer to become a Cycle Buddy, and help a new or returning cyclist build confidence and get comfortable with new routes.
To get involved, please fill out the Lewisham Cycle Buddies online form.
