We also had to check that we could:
start and stop safely
ride in a straight line
use our gears (if available)
control the bicycle when checking behind and signalling.
After we had practiced in the playground, some of us were able to practice on the roads to ensure we knew how to check for traffic and apply our road awareness. At the end of the course we all received certificates of achievements and now we have the right skills and knowledge to keep ourselves safe whilst cycling.
