Requirements: Riders must already be able to start, stop, pedal and turn before attending this course.  

The Bikeability Level 1 course aims to develop mastery in cycle handling in a traffic free environment  and prepare riders for cycling on the road. Please note this programme is playground based and riders will not ride on the road for this course. 

At Level 1 riders learn to:  

  • Prepare themselves for a journey 
  • Check the cycle is ready for a journey 
  • Set off- pedal- slow down and stop appropriately 
  • looking behind  
  • cycling one handed 
  • avoiding obstacles 
  • turning and controlling speed 

Things to bring: a roadworthy bike, a fitted helmet, water bottle, snack. Suitable clothing (loose items like skirts, baggy trousers and unzipped jackets are not suitable for cycling). Jersey Sport are able to provide loan bikes and helmets where required upon arrangement prior to the session. Please contact to arrange this. 

Weather: Please bring weather appropriate clothing to the session. We encourage gloves/warm zipped up jackets in cold weather and waterproof clothing in case it rains. For colder days we encourage warm layers and gloves. For sunny days please bring suncream and light layers for sun protection as well as plenty of water. Please note due to the nature of these sessions they will be weather dependant and should the winds/rain be very strong on the day causing a hazard coaches will decide whether or not the session is safe to go ahead. If coaches judge the weather to be unsafe to ride in, parents will be informed 2 hours before and payment can be re-used for another course or refunded.
