Level Three - Advanced Cyclist

All our courses are specifically tailored to the needs and capabilities of the trainee, but the one hour Introductory Assessment involves components which are compulsory for all. The purpose of this session is to assess the trainee's needs, expectations, cycling ability and experience, and to devise a training programme with them.
 
At the discretion of the instructor and in consultation with the trainee, this will be conducted on roads with heavier traffic.
 
Course to focus on…
 
» Fluid cycling - continuous hazard awareness and assessment, and smooth handling of the vehicle in busy traffic.
» Junctions - the types of complex junctions and the skills required to negotiate roundabouts.
» Lane discipline - correct positioning for multi-lane roads and junctions.
» Queues - travelling on the inside or outside of queues and how it should be done.
» Recognition of Dangerous Vehicles - lorries, buses and vehicles with blind spots, and how to avoid them.
 
At the end of the course, trainees will be assessed. Trainees will also be contacted within six months to log their cycling habits and any changes they have noticed in their health. Trainees will also be invited to make useful criticisms of the course in order to help us continually maintain our standards.
