    What is Cycle Training?

    Known as Bikeability, this is the national standard for cycle training. We deliver to children and to adults as a one-to-one, or group session.

    Cycle training takes place in schools and community settings, is delivered in partnership with local councils and organisations, or can be paid for privately.

    Because we are an inclusive cycling organisation, with expertise gained over many years, we are skilled in training people of different abilities and confidence levels.

    What is Bikeability?

    Bikeability focuses on improving cycle skills using a national standard for cycle training.

    There are three Bikeability levels:

    • Level 1 – is the basics of how to ride a bike, including balance and pedal setting.
    • Level 2 – is more focused on road awareness; covering turns and roundabouts.
    • Level 3 – is focused on independent road riding and route planning.
