Tuesday 28 and Wednesday 29 June – The Shard

Wednesday 20 July – Tower Bridge Glass Floor

Thursday 4 August – The Roof Gardens, Kensington

‘Spin Up’ classes will also take place at Transported by Design at the Regent Street Festival on 3 July and More London Festival at The Scoop (between London Bridge and Tower Bridge) from 17-20 August.

Keith Moor, chief marketing officer of Santander said: “Spin Up is about having fun on a Santander Cycle at the same time as seeing London in a different light. It gives everyone an opportunity to gain confidence and to familiarise themselves with the Cycles in a relaxed environment These spinning classes are a great example of the excitement we have brought to the scheme so far – giving people the chance to do things they simply could not experience in any other way.”

Paul Cowperthwaite, TfL’s general manager of Santander Cycles, said: “It’s great to have unusual and fun ways of helping peopl
e become familiar with our cycle hire bikes and scheme, and the Spin Up classes mean you can get a bit of exercise in at the same time! Working with Santander is helping us to grow and develop the scheme, making it easier and more fun to hire a bike for commuting or leisure.”
