Bikeability Family

A family sit with their bicycles

We love teaching children to cycle with confidence, but it doesn’t stop there. We want kids to enjoy cycling as a life skill – and that means making sure they carry on cycling outside of school.  
 If families don’t cycle, children don’t cycle. So, we have developed Bikeability Family cycle training to help you get on your bikes. Whether you want further training for your child after they completed level 1 or 2 at school, or you as the parent need support, we’re here to help.  This course is personalised to your family needs and completely free.
