Cambridgeshire Bikeability Cycle Training

Enthusing the next generation of Cambridgeshire cyclists to cycle more safely and more often.

Cambridgeshire Bikeability Cycle Training

Taking our inspiration from Cambridge, the cycling capital of the UK, it is a pleasure to be delivering Bikeability cycle training on behalf of Cambridgeshire County Council. We are committed to developing a lifelong love of cycling amongst all our trainees by providing fun, progressive and releastic training. Last year we trained over 8,500 pupils across all three Bikeability levels within Cambridgeshire.

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

Alternatively please visit our dedicated web pages if you are looking for one to one training or a holiday course for your child.

 

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 Fix

Keeping those wheels turning. For KS2 children we run bike maintenance training sessions with our experienced and friendly mechanics. We aim to build pupils' confidence looking after their own bikes, enabling them to make simple adjustments and repairs.

Our bike maintenance sessions are delivered over two sessions. During the course, children will learn how to fix a puncture / change an inner tube, adjust their saddle height, adjust their gears and carry out basic brake adjustment.

Please get in touch to find out how we can upskill your pupils. 

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. 

Bikeability Promotion

Cycling is fun! We host events to engage a school's local community in family cycling events.  

Each school class (including school staff) will have the opportunity to time trying out a range of fun and exciting bikes in an off-road environment. At the end of the school day, the Try Out Show continues and parents will be invited to try out the bikes. The aim is to build enthusiasm for cycling amongst pupils, staff and families and demonstrate the amazing array of bikes that are available to use.
