COURSE OVERVIEW

The owner of Green Box, Paul, is an avid cyclist and has ridden many miles across the UK and Europe. During that time, he has had to deal with injuries of fellow cyclists so has built this cycling specific course.

Cyclists are at an increased risk of accidents and are more likely to stop at another accident. When dealing with a cycling accident, there is also the risk of being hit by another vehicle. This course is aimed at all cyclists, whether you race or use your cycle in town. This course covers basic life support skills and the specific problems that are faced by cyclists. The course can be taught locally or at your local cycle club.

The course covers the issues that are likely to be found by cyclists at all levels.
