Group size: The children are trained in groups of 10 (maximum) by two nationally accredited cycle instructors, and we can run two groups per day.  Each child takes part for two 2-hour training sessions.  We may also be able to work with complete beginners in shorter sessions.

Content: Bikeability Level 1.  This includes activities and games to improve the trainees’ bike handling, use of gears, signalling and ability to look behind while riding.  These courses aim to get children enjoying cycling and give them the basic bike control skills to develop as responsible cyclists.

Location: Level 1 training is playground-based. The area is risk assessed by an instructor prior to use.  The playground or a large tarmac space would need to be available for the trainees’ sole use during the session times.

Post session: Bikeability certificates, booklets and badges will be posted to you.

Resources: You will be emailed a register template and consent letter, or you can download your own on our schools resources page.

TfL STARS: You can count this course as a STARS activity (see https://stars.tfl.gov.uk/explore/idea/details/32).
