Bikeability

Bikeability is a cycle training programme offering children an opportunity to learn the essential life skill of cycling.

In the juniors our children get the chance to complete Levels 1 & 2.

Bikeability Level 1 teaches you:

  • Maintain your cycle: make sure your ride is in tip-top condition and make simple repairs
  • Glide: smooth, calm and collected
  • Control your bike: including setting off, cruising, slowing down, braking and stopping. You’ll even learn to pedal one handed!
  • Pedal: without feeling wobbly or out of control
  • Be aware of your surroundings: looking behind and turning around obstacles.

Bikeability Level 2 teaches you to:

  • Start and stop with more confidence
  • Pass stationary vehicles parked on a road
  • Understand the road: signals, signs and road markings
  • Negotiate the road: including quiet junctions, crossroads and roundabouts
  • Share the road with other vehicles
