Level 2 teaches children how to grow more confident with each turn of the pedal.  Our expert instructors will lead riders onto quiet roads, to experience “real” cycling.

Most children take part in Level 2 at school during Year 5 or 6. This is when they are between 9 and 11 years old.

Level 2 can feel like the biggest step for both you and your child – it’s cycling on the actual road! But with our instructors on hand, your child will feel confident and safe in no time at all.
