Level 3 courses build on the skills learnt at Level 2 and teach young people to master challenging junctions, negotiate multi lane roads and do basic route planning.
Your child must be 11+ and be a confident cyclist who can ride one-handed and look over their shoulder. You also need a roadworthy bike and helmet to take part. Training begins off-road, then moves onto local roads under instructor supervision.
Level 3 training is being delivered in one 2.5hr session with four riders and two instructors.

Safety during COVID-19
The Bikeability Trust (our professional body) have been working with the Department for Education to lay out strict safe systems of work to enable training to take place. Our updated delivery guide and risk assessments provide for smaller group sizes to allow adequate distancing and all training takes place outside. Instructors and riders will maintain 2metres social distancing at all times. Hand sanitizer will be available.
Your child must be well and not suffering from any COVID-19 symptoms or living with anyone who is symptomatic. By booking training, parents are confirming that their child can understand and abide by social distancing rules and will follow the instructions of the course leaders; we reserve the right to terminate a session / course early if the course leaders feel it is in any way unsafe to continue.
