Calendar Cycle Confidence
Designed to help new cyclists become confident on quite local roads. Starts in the park and gradually over several lessons takes you onto the local quiet roads. Endcliffe Park on Tuesdays and Saturdays 10:00 to 12:30 and Hillsborough Park on Thursdays 10:00 to 12:30.
Calendar Road Confidence 1 - Basic
Covers all the National Standard (NS) level 2 outcomes. Riders will look at starting and finishing journeys, maintaining a suitable riding position,negotiating junctions including mini-roundabouts, communicating with other road users and managing risk whilst riding. The course progresses on to use some NS level 3 outcomes (typically using traffic lights, bus lanes, using multi-lane junctions and deciding how cycling infrastructure can help, or in some cases hinder a rider). This will often be the first time new (and often existing riders) will have been experienced assertive riding. They will practice on a variety of junctions and get used to managing the traffic on quieter roads with exposure to more traffic as the course progresses. Usually held over two consecutive Saturdays.
Calendar Road Confidence 2 - Intermediate
Uses the skills learned at RC1 to show riders how those skills can be used to find quieter routes into and through the city to enable them to do longer journeys. Typically the riders will be using cycle infrastructure, some traffic free routes, and quiet roads and will show how busy roads can be avoided with planning. The course will help riders plan cycle journeys highlight the big difference in getting from A to B on a bike as compared to a motor vehicle. Usually run over two consecutive Saturdays.
Calendar Road Confidence 3 - Advanced
Builds on the confidence riders have gained on earlier sessions. Riders will be shown how to deal with the most complex traffic situations they will encounter – level 3 of the national standard. The course will continue to critically examine cycle infrastructure, will enable riders to use multi-lane roundabouts and roads, it will continue to emphasise managing risk through focusing on hazard awareness, will give riders the knowledge and confidence to handle any traffic situation and will encourage riders to continually learn from the traffic situations they encounter so they are always improving their riding. Usually run over two consecutive Saturdays.
