Bikeability in schools

Level One is run in the school playground for pupils in year three and four for up to 12 riders, however depending on the size of the playground we could accommodate a whole class.

Riders must have a roadworthy cycle and properly fitted cycle helmet and must be able to already ride.  The training is two hours.  All riders must have a completed consent form. Training is run normally during a morning session (depending on playtime).

Level Two on-Road Bikeability training is aimed at pupils in years five and six and is designed to teach riders to ride on local roads.

Riders must be able to ride a bike competently and have a roadworthy bike and a properly fitted cycle helmet and a completed consent form to take part. The training is 5 x 90 minute sessions which can be run once a week or over the course of a week (block week) depending on availability during the term.

Training sessions run from 09:15–10:45 and 11:00–12:30 or 13:15-14:45.

All morning courses can have a maximum number of 20 riders. Afternoon courses can have a maximum of 10 riders, however we can book more than one course to allow a greater number to train depending on local roads.

If a rider is absent for any reason during their course they will not be allowed to continue.

Level Three is aimed at pupils in Year seven+ (during summer holidays children moving into year seven who have developed their riding skills) and have already achieved level two Bikeability. Training is on busier roads and more complex junctions.  Riders must have a roadworthy cycle and properly fitted cycle helmet and consent form. The training is four hours.
