Bikeability Plus is a suite of additional cycling activities and extra training for schools to compliment the core Bikeability course.
Cycle Experience are fully equipped to deliver any of the following Bikeability Plus modules:
Bikeability Balance - A series of school based sessions that aims to prepare children in Reception and Year 1 with the skills that they will need to take part in Bikeability Level 1, by using games and balance bikes to develop their handling and awareness
Bikeability Learn to Ride - These sessions are for children or adults (family members or school staff) who are unable to cycle, including those children who are ready to make the move to riding with pedals after Bikeability Balance, older children who are struggling to master the skill, or adults who have never learnt to cycle. Works well as a follow on from Bikeability Balance and as a precursor to Bikeability Level 1 training
Bikeability Ride - This is a suite of led rides to choose from. The rides follow pre-determined, low traffic/traffic free routes, and are designed to boost confidence for a variety audiences who are new to or returning to cycling in a bid to make cycling part of their routine. Best delivered shortly after Bikeability Level 2
Bikeability Fix - These sessions teach Bikeability trainees how to perform basic maintenance on their bikes and, when run prior to courses, also serve to make sure that bikes are road worthy when they are brought to training sessions
Bikeability Promotion - This is a way for a us to provide an event where the local community can have a go at cycling in a fun, family atmosphere. The event is not structured, and focuses on ‘trying’ rather than ‘teaching’ or ‘training’. We are able to create an event that reflects the size of their local community and the resources available to them
Bikeability Recycled - This is an initiative to redistribute bikes to those in the community who do not have the resources to buy their own. By providing families with better access to bikes for children, more will take part in Bikeability and make cycling a part of their life.
Bikeability Transition - This provides students moving from primary to secondary school with a planned route to cycle to their new school. The module should be delivered shortly before students make the move.
Bikeability School Award - This is a ‘super-module’ for Bikeability Plus that incentivises and rewards schools for taking part in Bikeability Plus modules. It can be considered as a ‘wrapper’ module for all the other modules
Bikeability Bus - A group ride to school for children, parents and school staff. Starting from a local focal point, such as a park or hall, the Bus may “pick up” riders along the way at pre-arranged “stops”, before reaching school
Bikeability On Show - This allows parents and teachers to learn about and witness the skills that children have learnt during training. The most important outcome of this module is that parents and teachers gain a better understanding of course outcomes, and why the outcomes are taught this way
Bikeability Parents - This is Bikeability for Parents (and teachers). Since the principles and skills taught during a Bikeability course apply just as much to adults as they do to children, this is an opportunity for us to deliver our Bikeability course, slightly modified as necessary, to parents and teachers
