Bikeability – cycle proficiency training

Bikeability is today's cycle proficiency programme. It's designed to give young people the skills and confidence to ride safely, especially on roads.

There are three Bikeability levels, each designed to improve cycling skills to meet the new national standards for cycle training.

Bikeability training runs alongside the school calendar, from September to July.

You can read more about Bikeability, including how to get your school involved, at Active Barnsley.

Adult cycle training

Adult cycle training services cover three levels, ranging from basic learn to ride sessions to cycle plus and level 3 training.

  • Learn to ride sessions are held in quiet, private areas and are suitable for anyone who can't ride a bike, is low in confidence, or has not cycled for a while.

  • Cycle plus provides participants with the opportunity to ride in traffic-free environments, such as in parks. These sessions are the perfect platform for people to develop bike control and changing gears, as well as riding on different gradients.

  • Level 3 training helps build on-road cycling confidence, taking participants out onto busy roads and focusing on route planning and dealing with traffic lights, dual carriageways and roundabouts.
