Welcome to TfL's online Cycle Skills course

Whether you're new to cycling or just want to brush up on your skills, this course provides easy to follow tips and advice to get you going.

There are four short modules to try. When you've completed them, you will be rewarded with a 24-hour access code for Santander Cycles, with all 30-minute journeys included.

A Santander Cycles code will be sent to your email on completion of all four modules. Your code will waive the cost of a 24-hour access period and once activated, you can make as many 30-minute journeys as you like. Download the Santander Cycles app for the quickest and easiest way to redeem your code.

One code per person, subject to availability. Valid for 28 days from date of issue. Charges apply for journeys over 30 minutes. Visit Santander Cycles for full terms and conditions.
