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.

The programme is delivered through a range of partners, including School Games Organiser host schools, local authorities, freelance instructors, clubs and local cycling forums. The Youth Sport Trust is supporting schools to deliver the programme. 

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.
