Cycling Awareness Day

Cycling Awareness DayA Cycling Awareness Day (or half day) is perfect for children in Reception up to Year 2. It can also be a great introduction to cycle training for children in Years 3 and 4 who have not yet attended a Bikeability course.
Every child is invited to bring their bike and helmet into school. Safety checks are carried out on every bike (max 90 bikes). We hold an assembly on the importance of wearing a helmet and other safety issues, then we check every helmet. Each class (max 30 pupils) has one hour of training, which includes:

  • Advice on cycle control
  • Starting and stopping
  • Fun games and activities
  • Certificates for all participants

Cycing Awareness DayIt is not essential to own a bike to take part, as we encourage children to share bikes as much as possible. Helmets are compulsory, but we bring a supply of spare helmets. It does not matter if children ride with the support of stabilisers for these events as we put children into groups of similar ability.

Cycling Awareness DayThe Cycling Awareness Day is led by our accredited instructors. We encourage parent volunteers to get involved by helping with simple bike and helmet checks and cycle training (full briefing and instruction is provided).

A Cycling Awareness Full Day is usually 6 hours in duration, to include time for all the bike checks and administration.
We can also offer a Cycling Awareness Morning or Afternoon, which is usually 3-4 hours in duration, including time for bike checks and administration.

Cycling Awareness Days work best as a ‘taster’ in advance of Biking Basics or Bikeability Level 1 courses.
