If you would like a Bikeability course at your school, speak to the school staff and ask them to contact your local cycle trainers. Their details can be found on the Bikeability website.
Bikeability courses are usually run for year 5 and 6 pupils. The number of spaces available is limited due to funding, but we aim to get as many children trained as possible.
You will need a bicycle and a helmet to take part in a Bikeability course. Your bicycle must be roadworthy, including:
If a bike is not fit to be used due to a mechanical problem, you may not be able to take part in the course.
Level 1 Bikeability involves playground skills, which the rider will have to be proficient at before they are allowed on the roads for Level 2. The whole of Level 2 is based on the road.
It is not law that you must have passed your Bikeability test to ride a bicycle on the roads, although it is advisable to take part in the training if you get an opportunity.
You can book private lessons through the Bikeability website.
