Want your child to learn to ride, improve their skills or find out where they can get cycle training?


Cycle training for children

Cycle training can benefit all cyclists, whatever their age or current level.  Whether you are new to cycling, or experienced, there is always something to learn.

bikeabilityWe recommend Bikeability training which was launched in England in 2007 and is the government approved and nationally recognised award for cycle training overseen by the Department for Transport. It is underpinned by the National Standards which were developed by leading experts in the fields of both cycling and road safety and  launched in 2005 and is both a quality control procedure for training schemes and the consumer facing brand for delivery of the standards. 

Bikeability is cycling proficiency for the 21st century, designed to give the skills and confidence needed to cycle safely on today's busy roads.

We have been awarded funding by the Department for Transport for the period 2017 – 2020 for Bikeability core cycle training (Levels 1, 2 and 3) and also a number of new Bikeability Plus modules.  The Bikeability core training modules and some of the Bikeability Plus modules will be delivered via schools.  Schools will need to bid for this provision for information can be found under the section ‘Cycle training for Schools’.
