Bikeability

- 13 April 2012

Every child in England is entitled to Bikeability training, but CTC tells The Times that of the 600,000 children aged 10-11, only about 250,000 had free training in the past financial year.

Councils have been accused of failing to claim millions of pounds in funding for children’s cycling, even as the Government commits more money to improve training and safety.

This year less than half of children in England and Wales will receive the free cycle training to which they are entitled by law, despite evidence that the courses help to save lives.

The CTC Cycle Champions project provided training for two volunteers, Ellie Hill and Garry Leivers, who have gave up their own time to gain the National Standards Instructor training qualification. They have been running cycle activities with the help of a young leader Andrew for children and their siblings attending the RSD holiday play scheme. This was the third year that the play scheme has taken place and it has doubled in its popularity.
