CityConnect Cycles: Free cycle training for adults!
This Level 2 course takes place over the following 3 sessions: Fridays 14th, 21st and 28th October all 13:15 to 14:45 at Fearnville Leisure Centre in Leeds. Please try to arrive at least 10 minutes before the start of the session as we need to get each participant matched up with a bike and ready to ride.
If you have completed a Level 1 course with us, then this is your next step. Or if you can already ride a bike but are not confident cycling on the road, then Level 2 is what you need. To start Level 2 training you need to already be able to look over your shoulder while cycling, and signal left and right while cycling; the instructor will check that all participants can do this at the start of the session.
Practising on quiet roads you will learn how to tackle junctions without stress, and use positive road positioning to get yourself a bit more room on the road.
If you have your own fully working bike that you would like to bring with you that's great. However you don't need a bike to take part, you can use one of ours. We have a range of sizes and can find one to suit you. You simply need to bring yourself and wear comfortable clothing and trainers or something similar. Make sure you dress for the weather as the session will take place outside. This means warm clothes and gloves if it's a bit chilly and a waterproof coat if it looks like rain!
If you have chosen your course dates but there is one session you will not be able to attend, please talk to us and we can look at booking you on to one session of another course.
We are also running sessions in other areas of West Yorkshire. All courses and venues are listed on Eventbrite.
