Bikeability

Bikeability Level 1/2

Bikeability gives children the skills and confidence they need to cycle on roads. All primary/junior schools in Wokingham borough now offer Bikeability training at school. This is funded by a Bikeability grant from the Department for Transport. The training covers Bikeability Level 1 and 2 (combined).

Level 1/2 courses start in a traffic free area (e.g. a playground or car park) then moves onto quiet roads in the local area, progressing to roads with more traffic by the third session. The training covers Bikeability Level 1 and 2 (combined).

To take part children normally have to be:

  • 10 years or over by 31 August 2020
  • Able to ride a bike competently
  • Owners of a roadworthy bike and a cycle helmet
Want to try the next level?  

If you have already passed Bikeability Level 2 and are a confident cyclist, then why not have a go at Level 3? Bikeability Level 3 training teaches you to cycle on more challenging roads and traffic situations, including complex junctions and busy roundabouts. 

To be eligible you need to satisfy the following conditions

  • Age 11 years or over by 31 August 2020
  • Must have already passed Bikeability Level 2 and have experience of cycling on your own in traffic
  • Must have a roadworthy bike suitable for road cycling (mountain bikes, hybrids or road bikes are fine, but not BMX-type bikes which don’t have gears)
  • Must wear a cycle helmet
