Bikeability in Schools

Big Birmingham Bikes are offering all schools in Birmingham the opportunity to have a range of cycle training delivered on site and on road to teach a vital life skill. All training is delivered by fully qualified and DBS checked local instructors.

All training is delivered completely free to schools and pupils.

Primary Schools Bikeability

We offer a fantastic range of Bikeability throughout the year.
Level 1 Bikeability: Off-road cycle skills development for Primary Years 3/4.
Level 1/2 Bikeability: On and off-road session for Primary Years 5 and 6.
Bikeability Ride: This is a series of led rides along pre-determined, low traffic/traffic free routes. The rides are relatively short; they are not designed for training experienced cyclists.

Bikeability Fix: These classroom based sessions teach Year 5/6 pupils how to perform basic maintenance on their bikes.

Secondary Schools Bikeability

The Secondary School Bikeability offer is delivered predominantly from September onwards. It includes free Level 2 on road Bikeability training for Year 7 pupils in curriculum time. We can teach every pupil in year 7 over a number of weeks.

Training includes a quick Level 1 assessment in the first session to gauge cycling ability.

Pupils will be encouraged to use their own bikes. n Instructors will work in school for the period of training to build up a relationship.

Individual pupils will only be out of lessons for five hours maximum per week.

Schools who sign up for our Year 7 offer are given priority for Years 8 – 11 Level 3 training in P.E lessons. Additional lessons covering GCSE P.E, Cycle Maintenance Courses/Frame Academy and Dr Bike are also available.
