Bikeability is ‘cycling proficiency’ for the 21st century, designed to give the next generation the skills and confidence to ride their bikes on today’s roads.
There are three Bikeability levels, with each level designed to help improve their cycling skills, no matter what they know already. Levels 1, 2 and 3 take trainees on a journey from the basics of balance and control, all the way through to planning and making a journey by themselves on busier roads.
Children will typically start Bikeability lessons once they have learnt to ride a bike. Level 1 will help new riders in lower schools to control their bike before they move on to developing on-road skills at Level 2. Middle schools can access a combined Level 1 and Level 2 which is usually tackled by children in Years 5,6, or 7. Level 3 teaches trainees how to ride in different and more challenging traffic situations, and is specifically targeted at upper school students.
