What is Bikeability Scotland?
Bikeability Scotland is like the modern day cycling proficiency, with a few differences. We designed Bikeability Scotland to give children the skills and confidence they need to cycle safely on today’s roads.
The training is split into three levels:
- Level 1 is taught in a traffic free environment, like a playground, and teaches essential bike handling skills;
- Level 2 is taught on-road and teaches children the skills necessary to be able to negotiate most on-road situations;
- Level 3 is taught on road and teaches children how to journey plan, how to deal with complex road junctions and how to become an independent cyclist.
Interested in volunteering?
Bikeability Scotland relies on volunteers to deliver training to our future cyclists. Training kids to cycle is fun and rewarding, knowing that you are passing on skills that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
By volunteering you will receive a training qualification to add to your CV and you’ll gain new links at your school and community.
How do I get involved?
The first step would be to become a Cycle Training Assistant (CTA). A one day training course is all that’s needed and courses take place all over Scotland. If you are interested in gaining this recognised qualification, contact your school or use our the form below to register your interest.
