Bikeability – National Standards 1,2,3 training for all. The 21st Century Cycle Proficiency.

In level 1 learn to control and master your bike. Liz will teach you basic cycle control skills including starting and pedalling; stopping; manoeuvring; signalling and using the gears on your bike. These activities take place in non traffic environment such as a paved area in a park (tennis court), playground or car park.

Level 2 gives you a real cycling experience so that you are able to deal with traffic on short journeys. Liz can teach you about road positioning, the highway code, and passing side roads so that you are more confident when cycling routes to school, your friends’ house and the shops.

Finally level 3 introduces you to more complex junctions and roundabouts, talking about making decisions on the move.
