The training takes place on a route you plan that has been checked and risk assessed by your instructor. Unless told otherwise by your instructor, please plan a short route from home to place you would like to visit. This could be the shops, maybe the park or even work. You will need to share the route with your training provider so the instructor can check and risk assess it before training starts.
When planning a route, read these tips, and think about the following:
- Can I make use of any bike lanes or cycle paths?
- Are there any local roads that I really do not feel comfortable riding on?
- What is the condition of the local roads?
- What is the most direct route? Do I want to take it? If not, why not?
