Children’s holiday Bikeability

Children’s school holiday Bikeability courses are back and running in the holidays.

Islington Council offers free Bikeability cycle training for children aged 5-12 years old in the school holidays at Rosemary Gardens (N1) and Tollington Place (N4).

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)

All sessions will be run to current Covid-safe protocols.

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.

Nearly every Islington school offers 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.
