Some FAQ from Learners:

  • Question: What are the minimum things you should take out with you when you go out on your ride?

Answer: Mike: Drinks, banana/gels, mobile phone (charged), multi-tool, spare inner tube, puncture repair kit, tyre levers, CO2 cartridge and/or pump, emergency cash and a spare ‘magic’ chain link. You might also consider extra rain-protective clothing and a mini-chain tool. A motor-pacing scooter can also be handy! And if you are riding to get away from it all forget the phone.

  • Question: How often should you clean your bike if you’re riding 2-3 times a week or more? Is there any particular method you’d advise following?

Mike: After every ride! Degrease your chain and any other oil-soiled components first – (I use a chain cleaning tool Car Plan degreaser), then clean with a proprietary detergent, rinse off, dry, lubricate the chain. Check cable operation and lubricate if necessary.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
