Bikeability cycle training

A training programme to give children the confidence to cycle from home to school

What is Bikeability?

Bikeability builds from skills on the playground to completing independent journeys.

There are 3 levels of training:

  • Level 1: Children learn to control and master a bike
  • Level 2: Dealing with traffic on short journeys and taking on a variety of safe manoeuvres
  • Level 3: Children are confronted with a variety of traffic conditions as they learn the skills that will allow them to cycle from home to school safely

Training doesn’t stop on the road. Teachers get a range of classroom resources to support learning.
