Bedford Bikeability Cycle Training

Working on behalf of Bedford Borough Council to enthuse the next generation of cyclists.

Bedford Bikeability Cycle Training

It is a pleasure to be working on behalf of Bedford Borough Council to deliver Bikeability cycle training to schools throughout the area. We aim to develop a lifelong love of cycling amongst all trainees by providing fun, progressive and releastic training. Last year we trained over 1,000 pupils across all three Bikeability levels throughout Bedford. 

Please scroll down to find out more about the school Bikeability cycle training and holiday courses we currently offer.  If you are interested in booking Bikeability cycle training for your school, please get in touch. 

 

Bikeability Level 1

Off-road fun! Level 1 challenges trainees to control and master their bikes through a variety of playground games. Available to year 3 and 4 pupils, the training aims to boost confidence and enthuse participants to cycle more off-road.

We recognise that children learn best by doing, having plenty of opportunity to practice and most of all having fun. Our progressive 2 hour session has loads of riding and short games to develop and refine every trainee's skills. 

For a list of the Level 1 outcomes taught, please get in touch.

Bikeability Level 2

Residential rider. Level 2 takes place on local roads around school which trainees are likely to cycle on. Trainees receive a realistic cycling experience equiping them with the skills to cycle short journeys e.g to school. We educate riders on effective observations, understanding road priorities, communicating with other roads users and effective road positioning. 

Year 5, 6 and/or 7 pupils receive a Level 1 session followed by three Level 2 sessions in small groups.

Please get in touch to find out more about the Level 2 outcomes and how these link with the National Curriculum.

Bikeability Level 3

Advanced commuter. Level 3 equips trainees with the skills to tackle more complex roads and traffic situations such as roundabouts and junctions controlled by traffic lights. The training also includes guidance and practice on planning routes. 

This training is open to pupils in years 6, 7, 8 and 9 who have already achieved Level 2. We work in small groups with a maximum of 3 trainees to 1 instructor which allows plenty of flexibility to meet the needs of every participant.

For more information and a copy of the Level 3 outcomes, please get in touch.

Bikeability Balance

Balance First. Balance bike training offers a great introduction to cycling, developing the essential skills of balance and coordination needed to ride. 

Delivered on specific bikes without pedals, the game-based sessions focus on encouraging children in early years to push and glide. Our instructors are creative and use imaginative games to build lots of enthusiasm on two wheels. The progression from balance bikes to pedal cycling becomes easier once trainees have mastered the art of balancing on a bike.

Bikeability Learn to Ride

A valuable life skill. Everyone remembers the first time they learnt to ride and we ensure this starts a lifelong love of cycling.

Aimed at pupils who are unable to cycle, the sessions motivate trainees to master the skills of balance, control and pedalling. Whether children are trying for the first time or older children are after additonal guidance, we provide fun and supportive steps to help trainees discover the joy of cycling on two wheels. 

Please get in touch to find out how we can help.
