Bikeability in Year 6
Bikeability is today’s cycle training programme. It’s about gaining practical skills and understanding how to cycle on today’s roads. Bikeability gives everyone the skills and confidence for all kinds of cycling.
There are three Bikeability levels, each designed to improve cycling skills, no matter what is known already. The sills taught take trainees from the basics of balance and control, all the way to planning and making an independent journey on busier roads.
In Year 6, we are focusing on Levels 1 and 2.
At Level 1 new riders learn to control and master their bikes in a space away from traffic such as a playground or closed car park.
Level 2 takes place on Meldreth streets, giving trainees a real cycling experience. Trainees learn how to deal with traffic on short journeys such as cycling to school or the local shops.
The children certainly look like they enjoyed the week despite all kinds of weather conditions!
