Road Safety Week

As you may be aware, national road safety week is coming up this month and the Council usually runs a series of engagement activities and hand-outs across the borough. Due to the current restrictions we have moved this online and anybody who lives, works or studies in Waltham Forest can request #WFBeSeen bike lights, Bikeregister kit or children’s hi-viz for free. To request any of our #WFBeSeen items please complete our online survey here –


All items are subject to availability and could take up to ten working days to arrive. If you have any questions regarding this please email


Free online Cycle Skills course

Transport for London has developed free online Cycle Skills course will help you to cycle safely and confidently. So whether you’re new to cycling or just want to brush up on your skills, we can help you take to the road.  If you complete all four modules, you’ll receive a unique 15% discount code so you can save on Halfords own-brand cycle lights, locks and helmets.

There are four modules to complete and each one takes less than five minutes:  

  1. Get ready to ride - gives you tips on getting you and your cycle ready for the road including basic maintenance and road handling skills
  2. First time on the road - shows you how to cycle safely and responsibly and includes tips on setting off, road positioning and stopping safely
  3. On the road again - helps to get you cycling again with advice on traffic lights, roundabouts and junctions, and how to share the road safely
  4. Cycling with children - gives you advice on cycling in a group

Virtual Tour de Waltham Forest

Cycling as part of permitted exercise is being encouraged as part of the latest restrictions. You can exercise or visit outdoor public places with:

  • the people you live with
  • your support bubble
  • or, when on your own, 1 person from another household. Children under 5, as well as disabled people dependent on round-the-clock care are not counted towards the limit on two people meeting outside


If you are looking for inspiration of where to cycle this Autumn, why not try our Virtual Tour de Waltham Forest routes? We have created three routes that are available here and you can join in using #VirtualTDW
