Cycle Training - Level 3
Level 3 Bikeability Course
For children aged 11 or over who want to improve their skills on more challenging roads and junctions we offer a Level 3 Bikeability Course.
Level 3 training is only available to children who have successfully completed Bikeability Levels 1 and 2. It is normally offered to secondary school children. However, if the instructor agrees, we may be able to train children in Year 6 who excelled in Level 1 and 2 training. It will be noted following the Level 1 and 2 course whether the trainees are ready for Level 3.
The Level 3 course gives children the skills to tackle a wider variety of traffic conditions. This allows them to experience many types of road conditions and more challenging traffic scenarios.
The course covers responding to hazards, making ‘on-the-move’ risk assessments, passing queuing traffic, understanding advanced road positioning, hazard perception and strategies to deal with hazards, understanding driver blind spots, particularly for large vehicles, reacting to hazardous road surfaces and route planning for safer cycling.
Before you book your child on this course please watch this Bikeability video, so that you can understand the course outcomes and what will be expected of your child during the course. This is not a course that your child should normally complete straight after completing Level 1 and 2 without any further practice.
How long does the Level 3 course take?
The course normally takes 2 hrs 30 minutes but we allow 3 hours to meet prior to the session and discuss the expected course outcomes.
Level 3 Course Locations
Our Level 3 course is a bespoke course which can be tailored to the needs of the trainee, encompassing a route from home to school. We offer two different meeting locations for these courses of Kings Park and Bournemouth Velodrome. Please book the course location that best suits your own child's home and school location.
