Congratulations to some of our year 5 children for taking part in and passing the Bikeability Road Safety Course.

What is Bikeability?

Bikeability is based on the government approved National Standards for Cycle Training, which teaches trainees the necessary skills to ride confidently on today's roads.

It is a life-long skill that can be instilled at a young age or developed for the first time in adulthood, encouraging a healthy lifestyle, boosting confidence and developing independence.

Bikeability is the public face of National Standard Cycle Training and is used by schemes and instructors who have registered to deliver Bikeability by meeting certain minimum standards. Scheme registration is part of the quality-assurance process to help ensure organisations are delivering best-practice cycle training.

There are three award levels for Bikeability, with a level to suit all abilities, from beginner to experienced commuter or rider:

Bikeability
  • Level 1 teaches basic bike-handling skills in a controlled traffic-free environment.
  • Level 2 teaches trainees to cycle planned routes on minor roads, offering a real cycling experience.
  • Level 3 ensures trainees are able to manage a variety of traffic conditions and is delivered on busier roads with advanced features and layouts.
