About the course

In addition to the school-based courses, National Standard Cycle Training courses are held during the school holidays by The Road Safety Team at Maindy Leisure Centre.

This course is aimed at children who are unable to ride a bike, aged 4-10 years old.

Children will learn in small groups to be able to balance, start, stop and make the bicycle move safely.

If this is achieved, they will then be taught the Level 1 National Standards Cycle Training Objectives.

Level 1 will be taught and assessed using the Road Safety Centre’s road training layout.

Maximum spaces will be 12 attendees per course.


Any child that is unable to ride a bike aged between 4 and 10 years.


There is a non-refundable £20 fee to book on to each course.

What should I bring to the first lesson

A roadworthy bike and helmet. Bikes must be in a roadworthy condition, with two working breaks, inflated tyres and working gears (Where applicable). Please turn up 10-15 minutes early on Day 1 as our coaches can check and make reasonable adjustments to any bicycle.

Water and a small snack for a 5 minute break half way through the session.

Courses run in almost all weather conditions, waterproofs or a change of clothes and sun cream may be needed depending on the time of year. Suitable footwear is also required.
