Bikeability Cycle training
Cycling is very popular with young children, and as they grow up the time comes when a bike is no longer just a toy, but their very own mode of transport!
More and more Local Authorities are implementing cycle training programs within their schools. Ensuring that quality is consistent can be a headache irrespective of whether the training is in-house or out-sourced. We know this as every year we train around 18,000 children from year 5, 6 and 7 on all levels of the Bikeability National Standards and we have trained over 1200 instructors across the UK.
We partner with Local Authorities and education providers to make sure that cycle training and Bikeability is delivered to the very highest standards – in fact we can confidently claim to offer an unrivaled level of service, quality and availability – ensuring value for money that few if any of our competitors can match.
Our cycle instructors are continually assessed, mentored and undergo professional development training, ensuring that we maintain our unblemished reputation for health, safety and quality.
We think of ourselves as strategic partners to our Local Authority clients, going beyond the delivery of quality cycle training. We strive to become a key part of cycling development and advocacy within the areas where we work.
BikeRight! provide an enormous amount of added value through experience in both development and delivery of cycle training and cycling related activities. We see Bikeability as the cornerstone to wider cycling development and participation, not just amongst children but also adults.
Cycling proficiency for the 21st century
Bikeability is based upon the 3 levels of National Standards Cycle Training that were laid down by the government and several cycling organisations, including ourselves. BikeRight! are one of the leading providers of this type of cycle training in the UK and we also train many of the instructors that work throughout the country for Local Authorities and other companies.
The Bikeability levels
Level 1 is taught in a traffic-free environment, and children learn the basics of how to control their bike and make an off-road trip, for example on cycle paths.
Level 2 is covered on quiet roads but in real traffic conditions. Children achieving level 2 will be able to make a trip to school or elsewhere on small roads.
Level 3 incorporates busy roads, traffic lights, roundabouts and other advanced road features. Children will not usually be taught this until they start secondary school.
Open courses for children
During the holiday periods of half terms, Easter and Summer BikeRight! offer accredited Bikeability training sessions to suit any age or ability, from taking the basic first steps to teaching the skills and knowledge to keep you safe on today's roads.
