Bikeability is a national programme, it is Cycling Proficiency for the 21st century and is designed to give young people the skills and confidence to cycle safely on today’s roads. Bikeability training ensures life-long skills of safe cycling are ingrained at a young age, while encouraging a healthy lifestyle, boosting confidence and developing independence.
Bikeability Bolton is being delivered by Bolton Council. Trainees will be offered high quality free cycle training and will hopefully be inspired to continue cycling either for transport, leisure or sport.
Primary Schools: Level 1, Level 2 and Plus can be delivered to pupils aged 10 and over. The Bikeability course lasts for eight hours, split over four two hour sessions. It is important that pupils are available for all four sessions.
Secondary Schools: Level 3 and Plus can be delivered to pupils in Year 7, 8 or 9. The Bikeability course lasts two hours. Pupils will be taken out onto the roads in groups of six with one Instructor to every two or three pupils.
During Bikeability Level 1 training, you learn to control and master your bike. The cycle training takes place in an environment away from cars or traffic – usually in a playground or closed car park
During Level 2 Bikeability training you will get out on the roads with expert cycling lessons in Manchester! Level 2 coached sessions give you a real cycling experience on quiet residential streets so that you are able to deal with traffic on short journeys such as cycling to school.
During Bikeability Level 3 training you will learn the skills to tackle more challenging, technical roads and traffic situations. Amongst others, roundabouts, multi-lane junctions and traffic lights are discussed and ridden. Delivered in smaller groups, or as a one-to-one, the Level 3 training can be tailored to your individual needs. We can help to plan your route and then ride it, such as a commuting route to work or college.
Bikeability Plus is made up of a number of different modules you can add on to aid cycling skills progression.
Add modules, such as:
