Bikeability
(Preparation for and Road Cycling)

Sophie and Martin have been delivering Bikeability for a while so in April 2017 b-buddies registered as a Bikeability provider and now they can deliver the sessions themselves.

b-buddies is the only independant Bikeability provider in Leicestershire.
Having registered in April 2017 we know our policies procedures and risk assessments are up to date, whilst our instructors have been delivering these for a lot longer.
Bikeability levels 1, 2 or 3 can be delivered to both schools and individuals no matter what age, including if your child has missed their sessions at school or they would rather do a 1 to 1 session.

Get comfortable, confident and safe in the saddle



What: There’s a Bikeability level to suit you, whether you’re just

starting out or want to use your bike more safely and more often.
Our professional instructors will help you develop better, safer
cycling habits.

Why: Bikeability is government-recognised, practical and

professional training, and we know that cyclists are more
skilled and more confident once they’ve taken part.

How: Professional Bikeability providers deliver on road and off road

training to groups in schools, through clubs, to families or individually
to children, adults, new learners and experienced cyclists. 


Bikeability is the only government-recognised cycle training scheme, underpinned by national standards. Cycle training providers delivering Bikeability must use professional National Standard Instructors and operate within our quality assurance system. Bikeability is therefore a quality mark for cycle training, identifying cycle training delivered to the highest
standards.
