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:
1. to discuss the barriers adults face when trying to learn to ride a bike for the first time.
2. to look at how a trainer can help the learner to overcome those barriers.
3. to practice delivering a learn to ride training session to other course participants.
4. 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.
