Children’s cycle training


Bikeability

Bikeability is a cycling training programme providing practical skills and an understanding of how to cycle on today’s roads. Bikeability gives everyone the skills and confidence for all kinds of cycling. There are three Bikeability levels which are taught progressively catering for all ages from children up to adults and any ability whilst ensuring that learning is lots of fun.

Outspoken

Outspoken is the provider delivering Bikeability in the majority of Northamptonshire’s primary schools on behalf of the county council, with level 1 usually being undertaken in year 5 and level 2 subsequent to that. Contact your child’s school to see if they have already signed up to Bikeability. If not, you can contact the team at Outspoken and ask them to get in touch with the school to discuss the possibility of arranging a course.

It may also be possible to arrange private cycle tuition for your child through Outspoken.

Outspoken

Northamptonshire Sport also provide Bikeability training which is currently delivered in the Wellingborough and East Northants School Sport Partnership through Manor School Sports College, as a School Games Organiser host school.

Pre-school

Teaching your child to ride a balance bike followed by a normal bike with pedals are important life skills that are an essential part of childhood.

These two articles from the CTC are great step-by-step guides on how to teach a child to ride:
