Leisure Rides

 bikeability

The Council offers Bikeability to all schools across Reading. These courses are based on the National Cycle Training Standard and aim to give children in years 5, 6 and 7 the skills and confidence to ride their bikes safely on today's roads.

Bikeability is delivered in partnership with the Avanti Cycling and is run by fully trained and security vetted personal.

The training covers three levels of training:

  • Level 1 - children learn how to control their bicycles and show are ready to start on-road training.
  • Level 2  - children learn to cycle safely with real traffic on quiet roads.
  • Level 3 -  teaches safe cycling skills on busy roads and through complex junctions

Children who successfully complete the training will be given a badge and certificate to award their achievement. All they need is a road-worthy bike and a helmet. For more information on Bikeability please visit: http://bikeability.dft.gov.uk/.

If you are interested in signing your son/daughter up to Bikeability, please check the course calendar and contact Greg Woodford for a booking form at greg@avanticycling.co.uk.
