Cycling Opportunities


For a full list of city wide cycling opportunities for children and young people CLICK HERE



Bikeability is funded by the Department for Transport (DfT) and is designed to give young people the skills and confidence to ride, especially on roads. The programme also aims to sustain participation in cycling activity in England.

There are three Bikeability levels, each designed to improve cycling skills, no matter what is known already. Levels 1, 2 and 3 take trainees from the basics of balance and control, all the way to planning and making an independent journey on busier roads.
