Course Description

This is a cycle training course specifically targeted at adults who have recently learnt to ride, or who have not ridden on roads for a while, and would like to learn more about the best way to ride on quieter roads. 

The course will begin with an update to the Highway Code and how it is relevant for cyclists. Following this, riders will be coached by Surrey County Council Cycling Instructors on the four core functions that underpin cycle training:
•    Observation
•    Communication
•    Positioning
•    Understanding Priorities

Surrey County Council Cycling Instructors are training to the National Standard .

The course will take riders from the meeting point into local roads around the area with instructors coaching riders on best practice and cycling skills when on out on their bikes. The format of the course may alter according to the skills and requirements of the riders.

The instruction will consist of demonstrations, conversations and coaching.
