This course is aimed at providing cyclists (including new and returning cyclists) with the skills and confidence to tackle everyday road conditions.
This is an 8 hour course, which can be delivered over 4 weeks at 2hr sessions, two half days or as a full day.
By the end of the course canidates will be able to: - Check a bike is safe to use
- Make minor adjustments and carry out simple roadside repairs
- Plan a journey
- Make an independent journey
The course places great emphasis on practical experience, and is principally delivered out of doors. The on-road cycle training aligns with the three level national standard, but ultimately we can tailor the course to the specific needs of the individuals to reach the four outcomes noted above.
Cycle commuter course can also be used as ideal preparation for workplace staff teams taking on a cycle challenge, such as the annual Pedal for Scotland ride or Bike Event activities. Through regular commuting, course candidates should be able to undertake social rides in comfort with confidence in their ability and preparation to get the most enjoyment from the event.
