About us

Cycle-Folk is a collective of independent Cycle Instructors & Mechanics based in East London.


We deliver cycle training, and cycling projects on a

not-for-profit basis.


Our projects are tailored to the specific needs of each individual, family, community, organisation or business, with whom we work.

We aim to break down barriers to cycling with a local, holistic approach. Working collaboratively with other local groups and services.



Why cycle?

Cycling is a low cost, fun and healthy, green alternative to driving or crowded public transport.


We encourage everyday cycling, in everyday clothes, for every day tasks, (like shopping, travel to work or the school run).

Children who ride on a regular basis are happier, healthier, and able to concentrate longer at school.


Cycling means freedom, independence, and a path out of "transport poverty" for many. Cycling is not just for the affluent or able-bodied.
