Childrens Bikeability

Wondering what Bikeability is? It's cycling proficiency’ for the 21st century!

There are three Bikeability levels, with each level designed to help improve their cycling skills, no matter what they know already. Levels 1, 2 and 3 take trainees on a journey from the basics of balance and control, all the way through to planning and making a journey by themselves on busier roads.

Children will typically start Bikeability lessons once they have learnt to ride a bike. Level 1 will help new riders to control their bike before they move on to developing on-road skills at Level 2. Level 2 is usually tackled by children in Years 5 or 6, before they leave primary school. Level 3 teaches trainees how to ride in different and more challenging traffic situations.

We work with local primary schools to run the Nationally Accredited Bikeability course, making sure that our young community gain the skills and confidence to ride their bikes on today’s roads. If you know a school that would benefit from a Bikeability course then let us know!

RUTS was established in 1981, by a group of enthusiastic motorcycling youth workers to provide activity-based group-work projects for young people. These projects used off-road motorcycling as an activity which took the interest of the young people involved and encouraged involvement, but at the same time provided opportunities for useful growth experiences, such as teamwork and taking instruction.
