Cycling training courses

Bikeability

Bikeability is ‘cycling proficiency’ for the 21st century, designed to give the next generation the skills and confidence to ride their bikes on today’s roads.

There are three bikeability levels, with each level designed to help improve their cycling skills, no matter what they know already. Levels 1, 2 and 3 take trainees on a journey from the basics of balance and control, all the way through to planning and making a journey by themselves on busier roads.

Children will typically start bikeability lessons once they have learnt to ride a bike.

Level 1: Helps new riders to control their bike before they move on to developing on-road skills at Level 2.

Level 2: This is usually tackled by children in year 5 or 6, before they leave primary school.

Level 3: This teaches trainees how to ride in different and more challenging traffic situations, and is usually completed by children of secondary school age.
