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 2023
- Able to ride a bike competently
- Owners of a roadworthy bike and a cycle helmet
