Ideally trainees will have their own bicycle and helmet. We hire bikes for a charge and loan helmets free of charge if needed.
In the morning adults will be taken out on local roads and shown the national cycling standard way to complete manoeuvres. The children will take part in a Bikeability Level 1 course in a traffic free area.
Around lunchtime we will have a break for lunch (either bring your own or visit the local sandwich shop!) then a route planning session.
After route planning we will all cycle together on the chosen route.
Our parent training may incorporate multi lane roads, roundabouts, traffic light controlled junctions and busy roads.
Both parent & child should have the following level of competency to take part;
trainees need to be able to start and stop with full control, be able to ride in a straight line and round corners and ride with one hand.
