The cycling proficiency training finished today. I have passed my level three. We were all given a little badge and a certificate. (I think it’s the same stuff they give out to kids after they pass their tests). I shall wear my badge with pride.
J our instructor gave me a lecture on the risks of cycling without a helmet he means well but I am not persuaded.
We cycled for two hours mainly uphill from Woolwich to Eltham doing more tricky roundabouts. It rained a little but we kept going without a break.
The Greenwich Cycling Training Team are really supportive and even though we’ve finished but we can still come back to keep practising. I still have trouble cycling around cones and in a circle which is necessary for balance and bike control.
