Younger cyclists

Cycling is a fun way for youngsters to keep fit while getting around their local area. Cycle training will teach them the skills they need to ride more safely.

The Bikeability scheme rewards youngsters for taking part in cycle training. They can work their way through the following three levels as they move from primary to secondary school.

  • Level 1: Learn to control your bike in a safe, off-road environment
  • Level 2: Cycle safely on the road with other traffic on quieter roads
  • Level 3: Cycle on busier roads and manage complex junctions in London

If your child's school doesn't already offer cycle training, the school can contact their borough's road safety/school travel team for information on how to book a course.

Email your full name, your child's full name, phone number and preferred borough to schoolsandyoungpeople@tfl.gov.uk
