CLC4190 Adult Cycle Training

The London Borough of Tower Hamlets (LBTH) is seeking expressions of interest
from interested organisations for the above services.
As part of the Tower Hamlets transport ‘Local Implementation Plan’ and ‘Cycling
Connections’ strategy, adult cycle training is an integral part of the Council’s ambition
to ensure more trips are made by bike, more safely, more often in the Borough. The
scheme – which is free to anyone who lives, works or studies in Tower Hamlets –
has proved hugely successful over recent years both in terms of the number of
participants being trained, and the impact of that training on the amount of cycling
undertaken by trainees in their own time. Under the current scheme trainees are
entitled to up to four hours of ‘Bikeability’ training from qualified instructors, on a ‘1-2-
1’ or ‘2-2-1’ ratio in terms of trainees/instructors. With Barclays Cycle Hire arriving
across the most of the Borough by spring 2012, and the potential upturn in cycle use
linked to the London 2012 Games, cycle training for adults is seen as even more
important in ensuring the safety of both new and experienced cyclists. Accordingly,
funding for the programme has continued to increase, with £37,500 being allocated in
2012-13. Tower Hamlets Council are seeking to appoint an experienced adult cycle
training provider to carry out this programme on the Council’s behalf from 1st May
2012 to 31st March 2013.
