Cycling for health
We provide cycle training to those referred by their GP to us in order to benefit from cycling. This can range from one-off lessons to a fuller package consisting of several lessons and the loan of bike delivered to your house. Training is arranged to suit you in terms of the location and times. For more information email active@hounslow.gov.uk

We work with schools across the borough running bike clubs from reception upwards and supplying pool bikes.

Corporate
