ROAD SAFETY &
About Bikeability (National Standards) On Road Training Level 2
LEVEL TWO is generally for the
10-13 age group who have either completed level one or are sufficiently
confident to not need to do it and for them to go on and learn the basics of
riding the four main turns on the road now that the law has changed as it is now
illegal for bikes to be ridden on the pavement. Age is irrelevant though,
a competent younger child will sell you their hearts and their soul to be taken
seriously, whereas an older one tends to think they know most of it already yet
teenagers, treated with respect for their age are absolutely fine, no problem! They
subject to demand, in groups of between 2-8, the higher figure being the
absolute maximum and always with a second adult present.
Private Tuition is available for 1 or 2 people (siblings for example) at £30 per hour for 1:1 tuition and from £55 for two hours OR from £25pp for 2 students for one hour & from £45pp for two hours - excluding the cost of badges. Entire days, consisting of two hours in the morning and a further two hours in the afternoon are also available from £80pp per day on a 1:1 basis or £75 if part of a larger group.
NB. The purchase of Bikeability goodies such as the badge and certificate is optional at an additional charge of £2.50 per level/course otherwise RSCT issued certificates will be used. And a surcharge may be applicable depending on both the number of students/groups requiring training and potential travel costs depending on where I am teaching.
Level 2 skills include:-
All Level 1
skills PLUS ..
If a satisfactory standard is achieved then going onto Level 3 Bikeability training in Y6 or above is the next step, however 'best practise' realistically speaking, would be that they practise their new found skills for a few months first before doing so. It only takes a quick phone call to set it up although we might need to look at training grounds away from the home environment as a village setting for example, doesn't tend to have the facilities needed for Level 3 training.
LEVEL 2 [INTRO. TO ON ROAD CYCLING] normally up to a max. of 8 x Years 5, 6 & 7 students or reduced to 12 if working with TWO fully qualified instructors or an Assistant Instructor**, going out on the road for their Bikeability training
NB. For Individual Tuition the methods used are totally different! (though the same principles apply). Also we take as much or as little time as any one individual needs; there are no maximums as everyone is different.
