You will learn more advanced skills, including how to: 

Use the best riding position for any situation 

Ride alongside other cyclists 

Ride on more complex roads. This might include busier roads, more complicated junctions or faster roads with speed limits above 30mph.

Negotiate more complex roads. For example, junctions controlled by traffic lights, multi-lane roads or cycle lanes.


Respond confidently when a situation changes. For example, when a vehicle pulls out in front of you.


Children can be ready for Level 3 from 11 years old, once they have completed previous levels. Bikeability Level 3 is taught in smaller groups or one-to-one so every course is tailored to a riders’ needs. It might focus on a skill you might want to practice more, or a tricky road where you travel often. 

Whether you’re planning to cycle to school, ride alone to a club or explore with your family, Level 3 is the answer. It will set you up for a life of freedom on wheels!
