Bikeability Level 1

Level 1 is all about learning the skills needed to make a journey where there is no traffic. It also gives the grounding needed before moving onto Level 2

Cycle Derby offers Bikeability Level 1 to all Year 4/5 children in Derby. The course is delivered by our National Standard qualified cycle trainers and takes place during either a morning or afternoon session. It's run on the school playground and uses loads of fun games and activities to teach children basic bike skills such as stopping quickly with control; looking all around (including behind) without wobbling;riding one-handed without wobbling; manoeuvring to avoid objects; riding with others and using gears.

Once children have completed the course they are presented with a red Bikeability Level 1 badge and certificate.

Contact your school to see if there are any Level 1 courses planned.  If there aren't, get them to contact us and we will set some up!
