Bikeability Cycle Training

What is Bikeability?

BikabilityBikeability is cyclist training for the 21st century and aims to get more people cycling, more safely and more often.

Worcestershire County Council offers National Standard Bikeability Cycle Training to all schools within the County. Bikeability is promoted and supported by the Department of Transport and is designed to give the next generation the skills and confidence to ride their bikes on today's roads.

Cycling is becoming more and more popular, both as a family leisure activity and as a sustainable means of transport. Bikeability helps us promote the benefits of cycling. For more information see www.dft.gov.uk/bikeability

How does Bikeability work?

A pool of qualified cycle instructors has been recruited to ensure that as many individuals as possible can benefit from the scheme anywhere in the County. 

There are three levels of training available:

  • Level 1 – An introduction to cycling and involves basic bike control (suitable for age 8 years and above or school Year 4)
  • Level 2 – An introduction to the on road environment and quieter roads (suitable for age 9 years and above or school Year 5)
  • Level 3 – Provides skills for all on road environments, including more challenging traffic situations and complex junctions (suitable for age 14 years and above or school Year 9)

In order for the scheme to be sustained at a high quality the following charges apply.

Maintained schools:
  • £5 per pupil for Level 1
  • £10 per pupil for Level 2 or 3

(free training will be available to a small number of schools with the highest proportion of children receiving free school meals)

Independent schools:
  • £10 per pupil for Level 1
  • £20 per pupil for Level 2 or 3
