Super hero Become a Bikeability Super Hero

Who will be our next hero? Volunteers required

We are looking for parents, grandparents and other adult volunteers to help deliver cycle training in schools. Volunteers will work with school staff to deliver Bikeability Scotland level 2 - a modern version of the cycling proficiency course.

The training is great fun and very rewarding. You don't need to be an expert cyclist to volunteer - you just need to be able to ride a bike.

Why train on-road?

It's important children learn to deal with traffic. The training is conducted on-road in a fully risk-assessed environment. This results in more confident and safer riders.

How?

To volunteer, you'll attend Cycling Scotland's one day training course to become a Cycle Trainer Assistant. The training course is free, informative and good fun!. Training Courses are run from Ancrum Outdoor Centre where our Bikeability Co-ordinator Grant Pettigrew is based.  After that, you'll deliver training to pupils for approximately one hour each week for 6 to 8 weeks. All Bikeability volunteers will undergo a PVG check to work with children. We aim to make Dundee an exemplar local authority in the delivery of the Bikeability Programme so don't delay and get in touch.
