You may also one day wish to cycle to work; we can help you work towards this too.
Do todays road look like a no go area for you and your two wheels? Whether you’ve been cycling for a while or returning to cycling, today’s road may seem daunting. Level 2 will help you boost your confidence, skills and cycling techniques for today’s 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. 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 1-1.

You may have been cycling and using the roads for years but there is always something new to learn to hone your skills.
