Summer cycling courses

SERP bikeability

The Safer Essex Roads Partnership has organised a programme of summer 2019 cycling courses for riders of all ages.

The courses take place in three locations:

  • Colchester: Queen Boudica Primary School, Cowper Crescent, Mile End, Colchester CO4 5XT
  • Chelmsford: Chelmsford Sport & Athletic Centre, Salerno Way, Chelmsford CM1 2EH
  • Harlow: St Alban’s Catholic Academy, First Avenue, Harlow CM20 2NP

Courses on offer:

  • Learn to Ride: for children or adults who are unable to cycle. This includes anything from those struggling to master the skill, children who are ready to make the move to riding with pedals, or adults who have never learnt to cycle.
  • Bikeability Level 1: At Level 1 new riders learn to control and master their bike in a space away from traffic such as a playground or closed car park.
  • Bikeability Level 2: Level 2 takes place on local streets, giving trainees a real cycling experience. Trainees learn how to deal with traffic on short journeys such as cycling to school or the local shops.
  • Bikeability Level 3: Level 3 equips trainees with skills for more challenging roads and traffic situations – busier streets, queuing traffic, complex junctions and roundabouts. It also includes planning routes for safe cycling.

All courses are £10 – to request a booking form or for more information, email: SaferEssexRoads@essexhighways.org
