My son did Bikeability in St Austell, Cornwall with trained instructors in the last term of school in year 5.
He was a little scared at first, we had bought him a new mountain bike to do the Bikeability course. He was excited but a little apprehensive.
The course ran over 4 days, he did the level 1 on the Monday and came home really excited and looking forward to Level 2.
He did the Level 2 on the Wednesday and Thursday and told us that he went all over the place, cycling around roundabouts, through cross roads and also had to answer questions on safety.
He was overjoyed when he achieved his Level 2, and his passion for cycling has gone from strength to strength. He goes out with his friend on his own on a regular basis on trails and is happy to go to the shop on his bike.
We also bought him a water carrier backpack which means he can go off with a packed lunch and have lots of fun. I have to say thanks so much to Bikeability which has given him the confidence he needed.
