Course Description

Bikeability Level 1 aims to develop cycle handling in an off-road environment and prepare riders for cycling on the road. Riders must be able to cycle (i.e. pedal and glide) to participate in Bikeability Level 1.

Bikeability Level 2 will develop riders’ skills and confidence for cycling on single-lane roads and simple junctions with mostly moderate motor traffic flows, preparing riders to deal with short journeys such as cycling to school or the local shops.

The level 1 & 2 training course will take place over 2 days with training taking place between 10.00-2.30pm each day. Training will be held in a traffic free space at the venue plus on local minor roads. Riders will have a 30 minute lunch break between 12.00-12.30pm each day which will be held indoors at the venue.

All training is delivered by professional national cycle instructors who have attended first aid and safegarding training and have undertaken a DBS check. Training is delivered in groups with a ratio of 1 instructor to a maximum of 6 children.
