          Year 7 students ride to success with Cycle Leeds

          BRITISH CYCLING

          Cycle Leeds put the Year 7 student though a tough a gruelling training morning on Friday 6 May. 

          Level 3 Bikeability  is delivered on roads with larger volumes of traffic travelling at higher speeds. 

          The group learnt how to negotiate more complex junctions on a route of their choice, usually your journey to school or work. Once they completed Level 3 and received their green badge, they are now be able to:

          • Cycle almost anywhere using complex road junctions and features such as roundabouts, multi-lane roads and traffic lights;
          • Plan a route using any road;
          • Understand driver blind spots and how to avoid them;
          • Filer through queuing or slower moving traffic;
          • Identify and react to hazardous road surfaces.
