Bikeability Level 1

27th September 2016
On Tuesday 27th September, 12 children successfully completed their Level One in Bikeability.

Bikeability is the new cycle training for the 21st century, designed to give the next generation of children the skills and confidence to ride their bikes on today’s roads. To get their Bikeability award, children are instructed on how to ride their bikes to the Government-approved National Standard for Cycle Training, which sets out the training and skills essential for making cycling trips in today’s road conditions. The standard has been developed by over 20 organisations and is maintained by the professional body for cycle training, the Cycle Training Standards Board. 

Level 1 is covered in a traffic free environment i.e the school playground and involves one afternoon training session . By completing Level 1, your child will be able to demonstrate the skills and understanding to be able to make a trip and undertake activities safely in a motor traffic free environment and as a pre-requisite to a road trip.
6 of the children have been selected to take part in Level 2 training which is targeted at over 9's. This involved 6 hours of training split into two sessions on the Tuesday 18th October & Friday 21st October.
We are very proud of the children who took part in the Level one training and congratulate them on their success.
