Bikeability- Year 5- April 2023
The National Standard for Cycle Training / Bikeability has been introduced by the Department for Transport with the aim of helping more people cycle more safely, more often. Bikeability provides riders with the theoretical knowledge, practical skills, and confidence to cycle safely on today’s roads. This two day course is a unique opportunity for children to improve their understanding of how roads work and to develop safe and responsible cycling skills. Cycle training can also improve spatial awareness and hazard perception.
A glowing testimonial from one of the instructors:
"This year's Bikeability course held at Meadowside showed the pupils in an excellent light. They were well behaved, very thoughtful about the subject they were learning, had a little fun along the way and importantly reached a really good safe standard whilst being a joy to teach. I am hoping to see students develop their passion for cycling over the coming years and reap all the benefits that it brings them . Well done!!
