Teaching adults to ride a bike for the first time
For further information contact Pedal Ready
This course is aimed at National Standards Instructors who want to work on the technique for teaching adults who cannot ride. The course will include both theoretical and practical elements and so it is essential that participants have a bike (to get to practical venue – if this is a problem give us a ring) and clothing suitable for poor weather.
Aims: To give participants an opportunity to discuss how adults learn to ride and to deliver a session to each other.
Objectives: By the end of the course, participants should have had an opportunity:
- to discuss the barriers adults face when trying to learn to ride a bike for the first time.
- to look at how a trainer can help the learner to overcome those barriers.
- to practice delivering a learn to ride training session to other course participants.
- to consider risk assessment on a learn to ride session.
The session will start in the classroom to look at and discuss the theoretical issues. We will then ride to a venue to practice delivering the practical session. We will finish off with feedback from the practical session.
You will need to bring
- A bike
- Packed lunch (or buy from local shop)
- Clothing appropriate to the weather
- Basic tools you might need for bike adjustments (There will be tools available if you are not sure what to bring)
Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided
Bikeability Refresher course including snaking people
This mainly practical course will give instructors an opportunity to deliver level 2 outcomes and obtain feedback on their delivery. It will be an opportunity to reflect on good practice and is aimed at instructors who did their NSI course some time ago or who have not had much opportunity to deliver Bikeability.
The course will also involve a look at the principles of snaking and give participants the opportunity to practice snaking a group around.
