Bikeability Scotland is the national cycle training programme for school children from P5 to S2. It supports the next generation of confident and responsible road users. Sessions are mostly delivered in primary and secondary schools. The ability to ride a bike is essential to participate in the programme.
This entry level is designed to focus on fun activities while strengthening bike skills. Each of the sessions are delivered in an off road, traffic free setting - typically a playground.
This level focuses on making short journeys on quieter roads, with an emphasis on signalling and observation.
Planning a journey and the use of more challenging routes like multi-lane roads and roundabouts are the main focus for this session.
Equipment and Kit Information
Bikes and helmets will be provided but bringing your own bike is always welcomed.

Cycle Friendly School
The award supports Scottish primary and secondary schools to improve facilities and increase the opportunities for children to cycle to school. From the initial registration through to assessment, we work closely with teachers, parents and pupils to help them achieve the award and schools are supported through each step of the process towards becoming Cycling Friendly.

Become an Instructor
The support of Bikeability Scotland instructors is key to the creation of the next generation of confident and responsible cyclists. Without our instructors, many of whom are volunteers cycle training would be beyond the reach of many primary schools, and pupils would miss out on learning a valuable life skill.
