Avanti offering Bikeability at schools supporting key workers

Avanti Cycling is offering Bikeability for schools which are still open for the children of key workers. 

The one- and two-day courses are available under strict Covid-19 guidelines, including rules on equipment and smaller teaching groups. 

Greg Woodford, director of Avanti Cycling, says: “Arranging for Bikeability for the children who are at school will benefit the schools as it removes some of the pupils from class and helps social distancing.

“Cycle training takes place outdoors and therefore doesn’t carry the same risks of infection as many other activities. 

“Like the Bikeability Trust, we believe that cycle training is a core part of the recovery curriculum,” Greg says. 

He also agrees with general government support for sport and active travel which helps to enable pupils to be physically active while encouraging physical distancing.

Avanti Cycling provides training in Reading, Wokingham, Maidenhead, Bracknell, Oxford and several areas of Oxfordshire. 

Bikeability is a government-sponsored, national programme designed to provide riders with the skills to navigate the roads with confidence.
