Give youngsters the best start to cycling.
Bikeability equips children with the skills, confidence and awareness to become safe road users. By encouraging cycling to school we can reduce congestion, pollution and will even boost children’s learning. Bikeability is a practical onroad training course, delivered by qualified instructors meets the needs of every cyclist from nine years old. Training is tailored to the cyclists’ ability and confidence using three levels:
- Level 1– Controlling the bike in a traffic free area.
- Level 2– Making a journey on quieter roads with simple junctions.
- Level 3– Making a journey on busier roads riding through more complex junction roundabouts, traffic lights and using multi lanes.
If you would like more information for you, your child, or someone who might benefit from the scheme download the under 15 Bikeability Training form and email the completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
