Bikeability Training

Most adults will probably remember doing their ‘cycle proficiency’ at junior school. A couple of hours on the school yard with ‘make believe’ junctions. Bikeability is the cycle proficiency for the 21st Century and incorporates training in real life traffic situations. Cycle Training Manchester's Bikeability lessons are designed to equip riders with the necessary skills for riding on today's roads.

Bikeability is a government recognised training scheme for cycling based around the National Standards for cycle training and consists of three levels. Each level is designed to improve your skills, no matter what previous experience you have. The three levels work on the basics of balance and control, through to being able to make longer journeys on busier roads.

As a recognised Bikeability training provider, Cycle Training Manchester are required to use professional National Standard instructors and operate within Bikeability’s quality assurance system. Bikeability is a quality mark for cycle training, and as a registered provider, Cycle Training Manchester deliver to the highest standards.

Cycle Training Manchester can deliver on road and off road Bikeability training to groups in schools, clubs, to families or individually to children, adults, new learners and experienced cyclists. We can come to your school, club or workplace, or meet you for an individual session. There is no upper age limit on training so parents are free to join their children if they wish.

All participants will receive a badge and certificate (for level 1, 2 or 3) once their training has been successfully completed and all outcomes have been met. Cycle Training Manchester also provides written feedback to trainees, outlining what they did well and where further improvements are needed.
