Bikeability training programme is about gaining practical skills and understanding on how to cycle on today’s roads. Bikeability gives everyone the skills and confidence for all kinds of cycling.
There are three Bikeability levels, each designed to improve cycling skills, no matter what is known already. Levels 1, 2 and 3 take trainees from the basics of balance and control, all the way to planning and making an independent journey on busier roads.
Level 1 training takes place at SafeWise Weymouth’s full size road layout. This is a safe practise environment complete with traffic lights, mini-roundabout, junctions, bus and car all with normal road markings (see pictures in the photo gallery below).
Level 2 training takes place on nearby roads, which have been carefully risk assessed.
Level 3 training may take place later for some students and will also be free.
