Bikeability is the national standard in children’s cycle training as offered by paid professional cycle trainers.  Bikeability is usually offered via your child’s school.  In Bradford District this offer is usually a combined Bikeability Level 1 and Level 2 offer with Level 1 being based around basic bike handling skills learnt in a playground based context and Level 2 being on road training helping children to understand cycling in a real world context.  Bradford also sees a small amount of Level 3 delivery where older children (up to 14) are taught more advanced skills in busier and more complex on road contexts.  If you are interested in Bikeability you should firstly ask at your children’s school to see if it is offered.  If you have any other queries please contact or call:
