This is a 3 hour course.

After this session the students will be able to:

  • Get on their bike, start cycling, then stop and get off
  • Ride their bike using the gears
  • Look then signal
  • Make their bike go where they want it to, including moving around objects safely
  • Stop quickly
  • Look all around when riding, including behind, without wobbling
  • Signal when turning right and left, without wobbling
  • Give their bike a simple check to ensure it is road-worthy

For the next 3 sessions the students are taken out on the roads, for a real cycling experience, so they are able to deal with traffic on short journeys.

This training begins on very quiet roads and as the participant’s confidence and skills progress we move to slightly busier locations.

On completion the students will be able to:

  • Start and finish a journey by road, including passing parked or slower moving vehicles
  • Be aware of everything around them and signal their intentions to other road users when
  • someone needs to know what they are doing
  • Position themselves properly on the road and pass side roads
  • Use junctions including turning left and right into major and minor roads
  • Decide whether a cycle lane will help with their journey
  • Use the Highway Code, particularly when it comes to understanding road signs
