The Bikeability Level 1 course aims to develop mastery in cycle handling in an off-road environment and prepare riders for cycling on the road. Riders must be able to cycle (i.e. pedal and glide) to participate in Bikeability Level 1.
Bikeability is government-recognised, practical and professional training, and we know that cyclists are more skilled and more confident once they’ve taken part. Riders will usually be trained in a group of 3-12, though individual training may also be available in your area.
At Level 1 riders:
- Prepare themselves for a journey
- Check the cycle is ready for a journey
- Set off, pedal, slow down and stop
- Pedal (including looking behind, cycling one handed, turning and controlling speed)
"I see cycling as a life skill, it's a great feeling to be encouraging the next generation of cyclists!"Karen, Bikeability Cycle Instructor
