More About The Organisation
Reducing air pollution and improving air quality in Bath & North East Somerset could lead to a transport mode shift for many local residents. Bikeability Logo
To help support this shift, Bath & North East Somerset Council provides training to those who wish to swap their car for a cycle through Bikeability cycle training.
Bikeability is today’s cycle training programme; it’s like cycling proficiency, but better! It’s about gaining practical skills and understanding how to cycle on today’s roads.
Bikeability gives everyone the skills and confidence for all kinds of cycling and aims to support progress towards cycling to National Cycling Standard level.
Bikeability cycle training is taught by professional, qualified cycling instructors. During training, all manoeuvres are demonstrated first by the instructor prior to being replicated by the trainees.
By the end of our training, we hope to see riders independently performing systematic routines including:
Planning well in advance, anticipating and responding
The most suitable riding positions for different parts of journey
Looking behind before communicating intentions and changing riding position
Knowing when to give way to others or take priority assertively.
