Manchester City Council has been an anchor partner of Bikeability since the inception of the scheme 15 years ago. For their efforts it has been awarded Runner Up in the Local Authority of the Year Bikeability Awards 2020.
At the start of 2020 we caught up with managers from Telford and Wrekin Council which is both a Bikeability provider and a grant recipient. We were able to gain a little more insight into the daily running of a provider - the highs and the lows, and the hard work that goes into providing Bikeability on a local level. They provided some very valuable answers to our questions.
In July 2019, Emily completed her Level 3 Bikeability at a school in Poole. The brilliant Bikeability team of Karen and Rob had worked at the school for over a year, delivering Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 training. Emily went from non-rider to rider!
