Our free Freewheeling courses are convenient two-hour sessions based on National Standard Cycle Training outcomes and are offered to everyone over 16 who lives, works or studies on Merseyside. The same applies to Bite Size Bike Fix. These free short courses cover the basics of bike maintenance in four sessions: cleaning and adjusting, fixing punctures, adjusting brakes, setting up gears.

We deliver Bikeability to the area's 395 schools, training over 10,000 children in both Level 1, 2 and 3 National Standards.
In the past year we have provided 291 Bikeability sessions in Special Educational Needs schools and over 1100 Level 3 sessions in Merseyside secondary schools.
This makes the Merseyside Bikeability programme the largest of its kind in the country.

These courses provide a unique insight into the behaviour of vulnerable road users and compliment our portfolio of cyclist training courses that we have successfully run for over 10 years. More...
