 Bikeability Level 2 teaches skills for cycling in traffic on quieter roads. Your child will learn how to independently:

  •  make good and frequent observations
  •  choose and maintain the most suitable riding position in the road
  •  communicate intentions clearly to others
  •  follow priorities, particularly at junctions

Trainees learn on roads with different traffic condiions but within a risk-assessed area. The course will begin in the playground where the instructor can assess the trainee’s current level of cycling skills. The training will then progress on to the road. Our Instructors develop road cycling skills through explanation, demonstration and practical exercises on the road, with individual and group feedback.  At the end of the course, each trainee receives a badge, handbook and an assessment certificate. The certificate will help you with the further development of your child’s cycling skills.

The level 2 course lasts for 2 hours each day, but the Fire Service have offered our trainees the opportunity to have an additional learning experience at the end of the session to cover:

  • A tour of the Fire Appliance
  • Fire safety prevention
  • Driver blind spots for cyclists
