Whilst not a legal requirement, a session or a course with a professional trainer will help most cyclists feel more confident and keep safe on the road, particularly those who have been away from cycling for a while, or learning for the first time. ‘They will show you the importance of presenting yourself assertively and confidently as an equal road user, as per the highway code, plus signalling procedures etc. Excellent advice and guidance on bikes and safe cycling procedures can also be had here. (do support these sorts of initiatives by becoming a member.)
Local trainers Pedal Ready offer a range of free Road Confidence courses or one to one sessions specifically tailored to the use of e-bikes.
Please also note the fantastic new changes to the Highway Code offering greatly enhanced protection for non vehicular road users from January 2022.
