Novices - Level 1: Have you recently learnt how to ride a bike or are you returning to cycling after a long break?

Level 1 courses are for those who can ride a bike but are not very confident about their cycling abilities. They are taught in a safe, traffic-free environment. Pick up the skills and knowledge you need to go down to the local park, or to take a trip out into the countryside with your friends and family. You may also one day wish to cycle to work - they can help you work towards this too.

Improvers - Level 2: Do roads today look like a no-go area for you and your two wheels?

Whether you've been cycling for a while or returning to cycling, the road may seem daunting. Level 2 will help you boost your confidence, skills and cycling techniques for dealing with traffic. This training is delivered on quiet roads with some traffic, where you will have the opportunity to practice the theory of on-road cycling.

Advanced Rider - Level 3: Would you like to try that commute to work, is there a certain road or roundabout you still find daunting?

Level 3 is delivered as a one-to-one. The instructor can come to you and ride your route with you, where they can show you how to tackle busy roads and junctions with ease and confidence. You may have been cycling and using the roads for years but there is always something new to learn to hone your skills.
