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 safer 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.

CycleWithMe is based in Richmond upon Thames, the cycling capital of London, but we will travel. We ask for beginners to come to us as we'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 we use roads near to schools and business when we are 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 Fiona Tisch. She is a passionate cyclist and trainer and has 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 she has trained you can include her husband and two children. Before becoming a cycling instructor she worked in international business in central London training adults from all over the world for more than 10 years. And, of course, she commuted from Richmond to central London on her bike, a roundtrip of 21 miles.
Fiona is a fully accredited National Standards Cycling Instructor so she is qualified to provide cycle training to children and adults. She is also a Volunteer Cycling Instructor for London Borough of Richmond upon Thames (LBRUT) and a qualified British Cycling Ride Leader. Fiona's a member of British Cycling and Cycling UK. And, she has a first aid certificate, a clean DBS certificate and full insurance.
All instructors that work with Fiona also have first aid certiciates, a clean DBS and their own insurance.
