National Standards Cycle Training

Level 1
Learn to control and master your bike. The training takes place in an environment away from cars or traffic. Participants will gain basic cycle control skills including starting and pedalling, stopping, manoeuvring, signalling and using the gears on their bikes.

Level 2
You cycle on the roads which gives you a real cycling experience so that you are able to deal with traffic on short journeys such as cycling to school or work. ( view images of training below)

Level 3
Participants will learn the skills to tackle a wider variety of traffic conditions than on Level 2. When you reach Level 3 standard you will be able to deal with all types of road conditions and more challenging traffic situations. The course covers dealing with hazards, making ‘on-the-move’ risk assessments and planning routes for safer cycling.
