Singapore Cycle Safe Programme

Trainer’s Course Level 1 & 2

About

Most school children in Singapore have to attend compulsory swim lessons and in the process water survival skills are imparted by swimming instructors. The idea of imparting traffic survival skills to all school children through cycling sparked the development of the Singapore Cycle Safe (Level 1 – 4) Programme in 2014 by former national cyclist Samuel Yang, whose current employer is the Singapore Cycling Federation. The Cycle Safe programme aims to impart a life-long skill to impact the wider community in Singapore. The programme which will be delivered through the use of educational talks and practical cycle skill sessions will also aim to create more jobs in the industry.

The outcome this programme hopes to achieve is for every participant that goes through the programme will be aware of traffic safety, and through the skills session be competent to safely ride a bicycle in Singapore.

Level 1 to 4 Programme

Four (4) varying levels were developed to meet Singapore’s infrastructure for cyclists. The overview of Level 1 to 4 are as follows:

The Level 1 to 4 programme will primarily be delivered through practical sessions with short theory explanations. At the end of each of the 4 levels, skills competency will be assessed.
