There will be a large emphasis on building bike riding confidence.

Intermediate: 10:35-12:00, £56.25 for the 3 sessions. Riders must be able to start and stop independently and be able to corner in control. Skills for the intermediates will build on those of the beginners and include climbing and descending, riding over obstactles and some road safety awareness.
