Essential Cycling Skills Instructor Orientation

Sign in or register to book online


Essential Cycling Skills (ECS) is the name given to the training and resources developed to support adults to cycle more as part of their everyday life.  ECS ranges from courses for absolute beginners (teaching adults how to ride for the first time) up to advanced on-road sessions and everything inbetween.  ECS can be delivered by Cycle Trainers who have undertaken a short (up to an hour) orientation which can be done online.  This provides key information about the course, the resources, additional support, course administration and the Cycling Scotland database.  An additional (up to an hour) orientation is required to deliver Family ECS sessions.
