WARWICKSHIRE County Council’s Road Safety Team still have places left for high quality Bikeability cycle training during the summer holidays this year. Bikeability is Cycle Proficiency for the 21st century and is aimed at children starting at the age of 7 years old for Level 1.

The Bikeability training enables children to be safer and more independent whilst travelling by bike on or off road.

As well as the obvious fitness benefits, children who cycle are more likely to be energised, excited and ready to learn.

3 stages with Level 1 just £8 per cyclist for a 3 hour course, while Levels 2 (6 hour) and 3 (2 hours) are just

£15 each per child and are aimed at children 9 years old and over. Level 3 is aimed at children 11 years and over.

At each Level a certificate and badge are awarded.
