If you need glasses or corrective lenses for distance viewing, please ensure you have them with you for the training. The council also recommends that cyclists meet the same or a higher standard of eyesight as drivers and motorcyclists, as stated in The Highway Code: they ‘must be able to read a vehicle number plate, in good daylight, from a distance of 20 metres (or 20.5 metres where the old style number plate is used).’

Cycle Confident works in partnership with the City of Westminster providing all its cycle training initiatives. For any queries relating to the training on offer please contact us.
