“We hope you will always Stop, Look, Listen and Think when out crossing the road, just like we do!”

“I was delighted to be asked to devise a lesson plan around Moving Up Safely. It's a great resource which now has lesson plans to cover the whole of the summer term. It's an important time of the year to teach road safety to the children who are moving on to secondary school in September and get them to think about their own safety!”

News Flash - School Cycle Training

School children across Manchester are being encouraged to hop on their bikes and enjoy cycling as a way to get about, improve their health, help the environment and most importantly have fun.

To make sure kids have the skills required to cycle safely and understand how best to ride on the road local primary schools are being offered Bikeability training for their pupils, with 5,075 Manchester children taking part in over 500 Bikeability courses in the last year.

Bikeability provides cycling skills fit for the 21st Century that are based on government approved National Standards for cycle training. The courses are run at schools by registered Bikeability instructors and have already seen an increase in the number of children cycling to class – with the number of children riding to school at least once a week increasing from 4 per cent to 10 per cent after participating in the sessions.

Bikeability is all about promoting cycling and engaging with the possibility of getting into riding a bike.

It comes in three levels. Level 1 for beginners is conducted off the road (in the playground) building skills. Level 2 is on-road cycle skills, carried out on quiet roads. Level 3 is more advanced, as children move up to secondary schools, training to ride on busier roads and handle road features like traffic lights and roundabouts. Gently building up confidence for children.

And with Bikeability kids are never too small to start learning to ride – the scheme includes a model for children as young as three. The budding cyclists are taught to use balance bikes giving them a fun positive introduction to bike riding.

Older children will also be taught about bike maintenance to help keep them pedalling and stay active safely.

Manchester City Council has received funding from the Department of Transport to deliver Bikeability across the city and tailor the scheme to meet local challenges and the needs of local schools. Schools interested in taking part should contact BikeRight! on 0161 230 7007 or visit
