Year 3 and year 4 children have been taking part in Bikeability over the past few days. Bikeability is today’s cycle training programme. It’s like cycling proficiency, but better! It’s about gaining practical skills and understanding how to cycle on today’s roads. Bikeability gives everyone the skills and confidence for all kinds of cycling.
There are three Bikeability levels, each designed to improve cycling skills, no matter what is known already. Levels 1, 2 and 3 take trainees from the basics of balance and control, all the way to planning and making an independent journey on busier roads.
The training took four days running from Tuesday 19th January through to Friday 22nd January. The children enjoyed this training immensely and now feel so much more confident on their bicycles. Well done to all of the children that took part. We took some pictures of their training, which can be seen below.
