Covid-19 Safety Procedures

We aim to sanitise surfaces and provide a low risk environment, but we ask that you also take the following precautions:

  • I was just wondering whether my request to book a cycling lesson on Thurs 10/09/20 at 12:30pm went through. The lesson was available but when booking (without an account) there was no confirmation. When reloading the page no lesson was available.

    • Hi Haaris – I don’t see any booking in the system with your name or e-mail that you’ve used for this comment I’m afraid. It could be somebody booked the last one just before you unless you’ve used some other details. You can e-mail info@capitalofcycling.org with these to check if you have.

  • Hi I have booked a class for Thursday 1.10.2020 afternoon 2.30. Could you please let me know the address where the class is held.
    Thank you

  • Hi! I’ve sent an email… please can you teach my 14yr old son (who has no experience at all) to ride a bike? I have tried but failed 😞 thanks.. Amanda

    • Hi Amanda, at the moment we’re not running any lessons because of the lock-down restrictions. Do drop us a line again when they’re lifted and we’ll see if we can help. It could be we could help with a one-on-one lesson for example.
