Bikeability Cycle Training- Module Guidance

Pupils at your school are eligible for FREE Bikeability cycle training funded by South Norfolk School Sport Partnership. SJ3 coaching a local cycle training provider, has been choosed to deliver the training in our schools.

The Bikeability award scheme is the national standard for cycling which aims to encourage more children to cycle. The course is designed to equip cyclists with the knowledge, skill and on-road experience to make a journey safely and confidently by bike on local roads.

All participating children will receive a certificate and badge representing the highest level achieved. Schools will be provided with post course letters to send home following the training. 

Bikeability Levels in South Norfolk 

Level 1 (Year 4 and below) – At Level 1 pupils in Year 3-4 learn to control and master their bikes in a space away from traffic such as a playground or closed car park. Trainees will usually be trained in a group of 3-12, though individual training may also be available. 

Level 2 (Year 5-6) – Level 2 takes place on local streets, giving pupils in Year 5-6 a real cycling experience. Trainees learn how to deal with traffic on short journeys such as cycling to school or the local shops. Trainees are usually trained in small groups – up to 6 trainees per instructor – though individual training may also be available.

Level 3 (Year 6+) – Level 3 equips pupils in Year 6+ with skills for more challenging roads and traffic situations – busier streets, queuing traffic, complex junctions and roundabouts. It also includes planning routes for safe cycling. Level 3 training is delivered one-to-one or in groups of up to 3 so can be tailored to a trainee’s individual needs, such as a route to work or school.

Bikeability Plus

Bikeability Balance  – A series of school based sessions that aim to prepare children in Reception and Year 1 with the skills that they will need to take part in Bikeability Level 1, by using games and balance bikes to develop their handling and awareness.

Bikeability Learn to Ride – These sessions are for children in Year 1+ or adults (school staff or family members) who are unable to cycle, including those children who are ready to make the move to riding with pedals after Bikeability Balance, older children who are struggling to master the skills, or adults who have never learnt to cycle.

Bikeability Fix – These sessions teach Bikeability trainees in Year 5+ how to perform basic maintenance on their bikes and, when run prior to courses, also serve to make sure that bikes are road worthy when they are brought to training sessions.
