Essential Cycling Skills (Beginner) BOOKING ESSENTIAL
Can’t remember the last time you’ve ridden, or feeling wobbly when you ride? Then this is the course for you.

This is a three hour course done in two parts over two days. Part 1 will cover the basics: using your brakes effectively, using gears efficiently and practising balance and control. This will take place in a quiet car park. Part 2 will be learning and practising the best road position to use and how to perform basic manoeuvres such as turning left and right and passing parked cars. This takes place on the quiet road system in the Crichton Grounds.

Essential Cycling Skills (Intermediate) BOOKING ESSENTIAL
Are you happy cycling on quiet roads but not sure how to navigate roundabouts or junctions confidently? Then this is the course for you.

This is a three hour course done in two parts over two days. Part 1 will be learning and practising the best road position to use and how to perform basic manoeuvres such as turning left and right and passing parked cars. This takes place on the quiet road system in the Crichton Grounds. Part 2 looks at more advanced manoeuvres such as using traffic lights, roundabouts and how to filter in queues of traffic. This will take place on the wider road network around the Crichton. Depending on what people need form the course, we may also include the roundabout and traffic lights on St Michael’s St.
