Islington cycle training academy Cycle Systems is making strong progress training head mechanics prior to the London Cycle Hire Scheme launch.

Service and outsourcing firm Serco, which is contracted by TfL to provide the Cycle Hire Scheme in London, currently has five appointed head mechanics undergoing a course, which could see each walk away with a City and Guilds level two qualification.

Howard Barrett from Cycle Systems said: “We are delighted to have been selected by Serco to train the critical team leader roles for the London Cycle Hire
Scheme. Their contribution to the success of the ongoing scheme operation is vital.”

Director Sean Lally told BikeBiz: “With £180 million being spent on the hire scheme over five years, this is a fantastic opportunity to further cycling in the city.”
