Adult Cycle Training

​​​Cardiff Council trainers are qualified to teach all three levels of the National Standard Cycle Training.

Beginners (level 1)

This includes:

  • checking your bike and your clothing,

  • making sure your helmet fits,

  • getting on and off the bike,

  • starting and stopping safely,

  • controlling your bike and be able to control the bike while signalling, and looking back.

This training is carried out in a traffic free environment.

​Intermediate (level 2)

The trainees are expected to make judgements and decisions at junctions and roads with traffic whilst turning left and right.

Experienced (level 3)

Trainees are expected to deal with hazards and make decisions on busy roads and complex situations involving roundabouts and traffic lights in heavy traffic.

These levels are presented as guides. 

At the beginning of the session, our trainers will assess your competency level and chat to you about what you would like to get out of the training. They can then tailor to your specific needs.


The training sessions are completely free of charge to anyone who lives, works or studies in Cardiff.​
