Bristol Summer Holiday Courses – Catch up Level 2 Bikeability
Thanks to funding from Bristol City Council, LifecycleUK deliver accredited Bikeability cycle training courses to small groups of children during the summer school holidays.
Due to school closures, some Year 6 pupils missed the opportunity to train to Bikeability Level 2, we are able to offer this training to pupils who have just left primary school in some locations. For Level 2 training, you must be able to cycle already and control your bike, you also need a roadworthy bike and helmet to take part. Training begins off-road to check skills then quickly moves onto quiet local roads to build skills and confidence.
Level 2 training is being delivered over 2 x 2.5 hour sessions with six riders and two instructors.

Safety during COVID-19
The Bikeability Trust (our professional body) have been working with the Department for Education to lay out strict safe systems of work to enable training to take place. Our updated delivery guide and risk assessments provide for smaller group sizes to allow adequate distancing and all training take place outside. Instructors and riders will maintain 2metres social distancing at all times. Hand sanitizer will be available.
Your child must be well and not suffering from any COVID-19 symptoms or living with anyone who is symptomatic. By booking training, parents are confirming that their child can understand and abide by social distancing rules and will follow the instructions of the course leaders; we reserve the right to terminate a session / course early if the course leaders feel it is in any way unsafe to continue.
