Courses for Home Educated Children

Home Education Course

Cycle training was developed to teach children to cycle and is delivered widely in schools. This course has been developed to suit home education groups, who may like to access the same type of training for their children!

The course is 6 hours and will give children the confidence to cycle safely on suitable roads.

The course can be booked as a weekly session or be completed over the course of a week.

The course is for groups of 3-6 children

The program is based on our "Learn to Cycle" course and is detailed below:

Learn to Cycle

Learn to Cycle is all about developing skills in order to have the confidence to ride safely whether in the park or on the road!

Sam who delivers the training is a qualified cycling instructor, find out more on the About Page!

Level 1


The first stage (level 1) involves training in the park; practicing signals, braking and gears. They should have excellent bike control before going on the road. This course enables children to build up their riding ability and develop confidence!

Level 2


Level 2 is out in the road. This is founded on the Department for Transport standard for safe cycling. We will look at simple journeys up and down a quiet roads, moving into junctions as they develop. They will develop their awareness and understanding of traffic, allowing them to make good decisions. They should be able to make short journeys on quiet roads without supervision, giving them the potential to ride to school or to see friends!

Level 3


Level 3 is for older children, and adults. Depending on their progression I will be able to discuss and show them busier roads, perhaps we can work on their school journey or look at how they would navigate busy roads near home. This is the highest level, allowing them to gain the confidence to ride on all sorts or roads and know which areas to avoid! they will have to have completed Level 2 to start this course.

The course will cover the basics of cycling and move through three levels, including on road training in traffic.
