In partnership with Learn Cycling we are able to offer our students cycling sessions working towards Bikeability Level 1.

Learncycling are a registered Bikeability provider based in Shrewsbury, Shropshire. They offer all modules of Bikeability training.

Underpinned by the National Standard for cycle training; a government-recognised set of principles, Bikeability is an improved, updated and more relevant version of the old cycling proficiency scheme, delivered by professional instructors.

We have organised 2 x 1.5 hour Bikeability sessions for students to take part in. The cost of these sessions is £15 per student.

Bikeability Level 1 – aims to develop cycle handling in an off-road environment. It involves games and activities to get riders more comfortable and confident on their cycles and promotes a healthy and active lifestyle.

Depending on riding ability and progress there would be an opportunity to work towards Bikeability level 2 and level 3.

We have availability for 12 students (in groups of 6) as below.

Group 1 Monday 2nd November and Monday 9th November: 11am – 12.30.
Group 2 Monday 16th November and Monday 23rd November: 11am – 12.30.
