I've just applied for this as I want to take advantage of all the TFL bike scheme - has anyone had the training?

I had it prior to the TFL bike scheme starting, it was really useful. If you are using the TFL bike accept taht you'll be cycling slowly, unless you are superfit!

I've done the training too and it was great, very practical and really useful. I use the Boris bikes and I certainly don't manage to go very fast on them, but it's great to be able to zip around on them at will.

They are slow but I suspect that's a deliberate choice of gearing. It makes for a safer ride for those unfamiliar with cycling in general and nervous of london traffic. I've actually quite enjoyed them, though my own bike is a very different beast.
