What is Bikeability?

Cycling is a life skill and learning to ride a bike is a rite of passage. Bikeability is based on the government’s National Standard for cycle and instructor training. It prepares people to cycle everywhere cycling is permitted, and contributes to delivering the health benefits that more people cycling promises. It's a progressive programme in which trainees first master cycle handling skills in traffic-free environments (Level 1), then develop the skills and confidence to cycle on local roads and simple junctions (Level 2), before tackling often busier, multi-lane roads and complex junctions (Level 3). Additional ‘Bikeability Plus’ modules aim to increase the take up of Bikeability training in schools and its impact on children’s cycling.

Chorley SSP is the approved provider of Bikeability training for schools across Chorley Borough, working on behalf of Lancashire Council Road Safety Unit, Bikeability Trust and the Department For Transport. All of our team have many years of cycling experience and are fully qualified National Standards Cycle Instructors. All of them hold First Aid qualifications and DBS certificates. A number of the team also hold British Cycling Ride Leading, Route Planning, and Cycle Coaching qualifications. Our Bikeability pages will give you a great idea of whats involved at each stage of the Bikeability journey.
