Who for?

Our Adult Confidence Booster Course is designed specifically for adults (16+) who can ride a bike but lack confidence to ride on the roads.

Course description

The course (2 x 1.5 hour sessions) will give adults the skills and confidence required to cycle on roads.

The course will teach riders how to:

  • Start and stop with more confidence
  • Pass stationary vehicles parked on a road
  • Understand the road: signals, signs and road markings
  • Negotiate the road: including quiet junctions, crossroads and roundabouts
  • Share the road with other vehicles

Plus more advanced skills including:

  • Use the best riding position for any situation
  • Ride alongside other cyclists
  • Ride on more complex roads. This might include busier roads, more complicated junctions or faster roads with speed limits above 30mph.
  • Negotiate more complex roads. For example, junctions controlled by traffic lights, multi-lane roads or cycle lanes

Sessions will be held in a combination of traffic free areas and on local roads.

Equipment

Riders will need to bring their own bike and helmet to each session. Please check that your bike is in good working order before the first session.

Cost

The course is FREE of charge thanks to funding from the Cycling UK Big Bike Revival project.
