Event description
FREE Cycling Training for Students and Staff!

About this Event

Open Scarborough is a North Yorkshire County Council project working with CUSU to encourage walking and cycling. We are offering CU Scarborough students and staff the opportunity to have FREE cycle training! The Level 3 adult cycle training will improve your confidence and safety, and help you plan a safe and easy route to campus and other destinations.

The course aims to build confidence on busy roads and equips participants with the skills to ride in a range of traffic situations - busier streets, queuing traffic, complex junctions and roundabouts.

The full course is 2-3hrs long, but please be assured you will not be cycling for a full 3hrs! This includes a bike and clothing check, quick cycle assessment and route planning so the afternoon isn’t strenuous. It promises to be an enjoyable afternoon with qualified instructors, who will be there to help in any way.

We will provide you with a high–vis jacket, just bring along a bike. Before the session we will carry out a bike check to ensure your bike is roadworthy. If you don’t have a bike, we can arrange one for you to use on the day, but please email us after booking your place to request one at road.safety@northyorks.gov.uk.

Interested? Then sign up to our course on Monday the 1st of April! If you have any questions, contact us on the email address above. There is also a morning session from 9am to 12pm.

Please note, this session is open to CU Scarborough students and staff only. You are also required to have basic cycling competence before attending.
