Bikeability Children

Bikeability is Cycling Proficiency Test for the 21st century, designed to give the next generation the skills and confidence to ride their bikes on today's roads.

Training Levels 

There are three different levels of Bikeability training:

  1. Teaches basic bike handling skills in an off-road environment and is ideally suited to children aged 6-9 years old.
  2. Is covered on quiet roads with real traffic conditions and is available to children aged 9 and older.
  3. Is carried out on busier roads with more complex road junctions and is suited to secondary aged children and adults.

Level 2 is offered to all primary schools in Torbay for pupils in year 5 or 6 to give as many young people as possible the opportunity to gain this important life skill.  For more information, ask at your child’s school to determine when we will be there.

Level 3 training is offered to secondary school students in Torbay by Torbay Sports Partnership, giving them the opportunity to plan and cycle more complicated routes.

We also provide women and child ‘Learn to Ride’ sessions and cycle training for adults who would like more confidence to undertake journeys.

For more information on holiday clubs or cycle training in general, please contact us.
