During Bikeability Level 3 training you will learn the skills to tackle a wider variety of traffic conditions than on Level 2. When you reach Level 3 standard you will be able to deal with all types of road conditions and more challenging traffic situations. The course covers dealing with hazards, making ‘on-the-move’ risk assessments and planning routes for safer cycling. Normally you will do this once you have started secondary school. As with Levels 1 and 2, you will usually be trained in groups of 3-12 cyclists, although individual training may also be available in your area.
Once you’ve completed your Bikeability Level 2 and been awarded your green badge, you’ll be able to cycle almost anywhere and:
- Make a trip safely to school, work or elsewhere on any roads
- Use complex junctions and road features such as roundabouts, multi-lane roads and traffic lights
- ‘Filter’, to keep moving through stationary traffic
- Plan your route
- Interpret road signs
