Bikeability Summer sessions

Have you been inspired to try cycling during lockdown? Want your children to learn to cycle in a safe environment with friendly qualified instructors? 

Bikeability is a national cycling award scheme which incorporates the National Cycle Training Standard. We’re pleased to launch new Bikeability sessions for August and September, that are fun, safe, good for your health and the environment!

The 2-hour sessions are totally free and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis, with a limited number of participants. In addition, we can also provide free access to a bike and helmet if you don’t have one!

Venues and dates

We currently have 3 venues secured for Monday 24th-Thursday 27th August and Tuesday 1st- Friday 4th September 2020.

Sessions for children and families:

Bikeability Level 1 sessions are suitable for children and parents if they would also like to take part. Riders learn to master and control their bikes in a space away from traffic such as a playground. 

Bikeability Fix sessions are suitable for both children and parents, and show riders how to prepare their cycles for a journey (including checking tyres and breaks), and fix a puncture. 

To book, please email: [email protected] with your name, contact number and details about which session you are interested in, or call: 0121 728 7030 if you do not have email access. You can book children a place and either accompany them as a spectator, or if you would also like to take part, book yourself a place to join in with them!

Sessions for adults (18+) only:

Bikeability Adult sessions will be delivered to meet individual needs and our instructors can help beginners and those wanting to become more confident cyclists.
