Whether you want to travel to the shop on a quiet backstreet or make a long commute along busy roads and junctions, there are straightforward techniques you can employ to minimise the risks when cycling.
Road Confidence 1 and 2 are introductory courses to cycling on quiet roads covering basic concepts such as road positioning, overtaking parked cars and negotiating junctions. Each course is two weeks and runs as a weekly three hour session.
Road Confidence 3 is an advanced course for urban cyclists, based in the city centre. It covers many aspects of interacting with traffic on busy roads and junctions, running as a weekly four hour session over two weeks. (It is recommended that you attend RC1 and RC2 first or discuss your cycle experience with the Pedal Ready office first).
Road cyclists who have already reached Level 3 cycling, may also book a bespoke one-to-one session which will be tailored to their current level of expertise. The session lasts up to two hours, and takes place at a time and location of the trainee’s choosing (subject to trainer availability).
Road Confidence courses are free to those who live or work in Sheffield. Book now to join a course in your area!
