Most of the children in Year 5 have managed to achieve Level 1 & Level 2 Bikeability over the four days of training. This is what they covered as part of their sessions.
Level 1 teaches basic skills and bicycle handling and is usually covered in a traffic free environment. Those completing Level 1 will be able to demonstrate the skills and understanding to be able to make a trip and undertake activities safely in a motor traffic free environment and as a pre-requisite to a road trip.
Level 2 gives children the skills they need to cycle safely to school on minor roads. Level 2 is covered on quiet roads but with real traffic conditions. Those completing Level 2 will be able to demonstrate the skills and understanding to be able to make a trip safely to school, work or leisure on quiet roads.
Steve, Dave, Geoff and team made this such a fun and fantastic course for the children, with most of the children making a big improvement over the 4 days. All the instructors couldn't speak more highly of the effort made by the children, something which I am extremely proud of them for!
