Bikeability is today’s cycle training programme. 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.

Avanti Cycling offers the following courses in schools: 

Bikeability Levels 1 and 2 – currently held over one day – free of charge 

Bikeability Level 2 Refresher – held over one day – £15 per rider

Bikeability Level 3 – a one-day course – free of charge

Here are the details our courses: 

Level 1 

The Bikeability Level 1 course aims to develop mastery in cycle handling in an off-road environment and prepare riders for cycling on the road. Riders must be able to cycle (i.e. pedal and glide) to participate in Bikeability Level 1.

 

Level 2

The Bikeability Level 2 course aims to develop riders’ skills and confidence on single-lane roads and simple junctions with mostly moderate motor traffic flows (where riders encounter vehicles with progressively greater frequency in each module), and prepares riders for cycling on more complex, often busier or faster roads and junctions. Riders must have fully demonstrated Bikeability Level 1 National Standard assessment criteria before they start Bikeability Level 2 training.

 

Level 2 Refresher

This is to help children brush up on the Level 2 skills and get the most out of Level 3. There is a £15 charge per rider as it is not funded by local councils.

Level 3

Bikeability Level 3 equips riders with the skill and confidence to ride in more challenging roads and traffic situations – busier streets, queuing traffic, complex junctions and roundabouts. It also includes planning routes for safe cycling.
