Level 3 training builds on the skills learnt at Level 2 and teach young people to master challenging junctions, negotiate multi-lane roads and do basic route planning.

 Levels 2 & 3 training is offered FREE to children and young people who live in North Somerset. However, to book you must pay a £10 refundable desposit. This money will be refunded once your child has attended the training. For more information about our cancellation policy, please see our Terms & Conditions.

Safety during COVID-19

The Bikeability Trust (our professional body) have been working with the Department for Education to lay out strict safe systems of work to enable training to take place during this time.

To attend your child must be well, not suffering from any COVID-19 symptoms or living with anyone who is symptomatic.  

By booking training, parents are confirming that their child can understand and abide by social distancing rules and will follow the instructions of the course leaders. We reserve the right to terminate a session or course early if the course leaders feel it is in any way unsafe to continue.
