Build your confidence to cycle this summer with a Bikeability session.
Bikeability offers various levels of training for children and adults from Learn to Ride for those who don’t know how to cycle, to learning how to fix your bike through to cycling on the road.
Bikeability combined levels 1 &2 and level 3 mainly takes place on roads and teaches you how to take your position on the road, communicate and be assertive alongside other road users and a host of other practical skills and knowledge for cycling safely.
Bikeability Transition is a chance for your children about to start secondary school to have help to plan a good route to their new school and develop the skills to cycle it safely.
