Providing cycle training in and around London.
Cycling is a great way to get around, stay healthy, save money and de-stress. It can help you burn excess energy, let loose your competitive streak in a sportive or charity ride and get you away from the city and back to nature. And most importantly it's great fun! Cycle training can make your journeys more confident and help you achieve your cycling goals, be it getting on a bike for the first time, improving your fitness, commuting to work or cycling London-Paris.
With over 1000 clients trained CycleWithMe has valuable experience to help you succeed. Read on for more info or click to contact Fiona@CycleWithMe
5-star google review from Nicole, Streatham, September 2023
"Fiona is an incredible instructor, thorough and patient. She suggested a quiet location which was perfect for learning from zero, which was my case, and gave me the confidence to start balancing on the bike on my own after one session, and cycling with a decent level of proficiency after two sessions. As a mature learner, jumping on a bike for the first time could have felt daunting, but Fiona made me feel at ease from the get go. I’d thoroughly recommend her services to anyone!"

CycleWithMe is based in Richmond upon Thames, the cycling capital of London, but will travel. I ask for beginners to come to me as I've found a lovely park, ideal for learning to cycle, with smooth and wide pathways and facilities for anyone who accompanies you. Road safety training is done on the roads you will use, where practicable. Similarly I use roads near to schools and businesses when I am training their students or employees. When it comes to training for your BIG challenge we ride all over, towards Windsor to the west and the Surrey Hills to the south.
CycleWithMe is run by me, Fiona Tisch. I am a passionate cyclist and trainer and have always cycled: to school, to clubs, to shops, with friends, to work, with family, getting muddy off-road cycling, on holiday, in the velodrome, essentially cycling everywhere. In amongst all the people I have trained you can include my husband and two children. Before becoming a cycling instructor I worked in international business in central London training adults from all over the world for more than 10 years and got to cycle all over the world during down-time on business trips. And, of course, I commuted from Richmond to central London on my bike, a roundtrip of 21 miles.
I am a fully accredited National Standards Cycling Instructor so I am qualified to provide cycle training to children and adults. I am also a Volunteer Cycling Instructor for London Borough of Richmond upon Thames (LBRUT) and a qualified British Cycling Ride Leader. I have British Cycling and Cycling UK membership. And, I have a first aid certificate, a clean DBS certificate and full insurance.
All instructors that work with me also have first aid certiciates, a clean DBS and their own insurance.
A successful business is one that realises that giving and receiving support is fundamental. CycleWithMe has built up a number of partnerships over time supporitng other local, like minded businesses and recommends them to you.
