This two day course is a combined Level 1 and 2 course and children must attend both days.
Level 1 focuses on the skills necessary to be able to control a bike. The training takes place in a secure environment away from cars and traffic.  We will check helmets are correctly fitted and the bikes are roadworthy.  Training will include the use of gears, riding whilst signalling, emergency stops and negotiating obstacles, looking all around you, including behind.  Although this is a two day course, encompassing both Level 1 and Level 2, children must pass Level 1 before being able to progress onto Level 2.
Level 2 is delivered on local, residential roads. It gives riders a real cycling experience that equips them with skills to deal with traffic on short local journeys, such as cycling to school or the local shops.
