The City children’s holiday Bikeability

Free Bikeability cycle training for children aged 5-12 years old is available in the school holidays at Rosemary Gardens (N1).

We are also running some special children’s beginner sessions on Car Free Day, Sunday 22 September, on St John’s Street.

There are three courses available to suit your child’s age and ability.

  • Beginners – learning to ride (age 5 and up, two day course)
  • Level 1 Bikeability – off-road control skills (5-9 years, two day course)
  • Level 2 Bikeability – on-road training for more confident riders (9-12 years, four day course)

Beginners – learning to ride (age 5 and up)

A short course (2 x 1 hour sessions) for complete beginners who have never cycled before, or have only ridden a bike with stabilisers (training wheels).

Level 2 Bikeability – an introduction to road cycling (9-12 years)

A four-day course (4 x 2 hour sessions) for children who can cycle well, but have little or no experience of road cycling. This course begins off road to ensure basic skills have been covered.  The training will then move on to local roads, where the children will work on road positioning, junction turns and communication with other road users.

There are no Level 2 course available in summer 2019.

From the autumn term 2019, every school in the City will be offering free Level 2 courses for its year 5 or 6 pupils – please speak to your child’s teachers or contact us to find out about your school’s next course.

If there are no courses listed above, or if all courses are fully booked, please contact us to be added to our waiting list. We will alert you when new course dates are announced.
