Bikeability cycle training is available free of charge for all schools in Devon (excluding Torbay and Plymouth) through Devon County Council. Bikeability is accessible for all children and all schools including academies and special schools.
Level 2 (includes level 1 basic cycle skills in an off-road area) is for children aged nine and older and provides a real cycling experience on quiet roads.
Level 3 is for children aged 11 and older, who have completed level 2. Level 3 training will:
- build on Bikeability level 1 and 2 skills
- explore the route options for journeys the child wants to make, for example, cycling to school
- encourage cycling in a position that will make them more noticeable to motorists
- teach children how to deal with specific junctions
