Our team of instructors work all year round to provide cycle training to Year 6 pupils in all borough and some independent schools. Our courses follow The National Standard Bikeability training and take place during term time.

About the training

The week long course is taught predominantly on quiet roads. The aims are to:

  • Reduce casualties among child cyclists
  • Teach pupils how to ride safely on quiet roads
  • Help pupils understand the rules of the road
  • Show pupils how to look after their bikes
  • Encourage more cycling

The National Standard Bikeability cycle training is the new form of Cycling Proficiency. It differs in a number of respects from the Cycling Proficiency Scheme:

  • New cycle training is more realistic, and is held predominantly on the road
  • Children do not pass or fail cycle training, as all children who complete the course receive a badge and certificate. The training seeks to encourage children to gain further experience on quieter roads with adult supervision
  • All children are given personal feedback detailing areas for improvement
