Bikeability cycle training       

We recommend Bikeability cycle training, a national cyclist training syllabus recognised across the country. 

There are three Bikeability award levels ranging from cycling in a traffic free environment to cycling on busy roads and being able to use complex junctions and road features.  For more information about Bikeability cycle training visit the Bikeability website

Bikeability can be booked privately but is also offered through many schools across the County.  The County Council has secured funding from the Department for Transport and is able to heavily subsidise Level 2 and Level 3 Bikeabililty cycle training during 2012/13.

To find out more information about the current level of subsidised funding for Bikeability cycle training being offered through Buckinghamshire schools please contact the Cycle Team here

To apply for funding, schools need to complete and return the Cycle Training Funding Bid Form

All our cycle trainers are Bikeability accredited and CRB checked. 

Haddenham Cycle Training [HCT] can train instructors to deliver the National Standards for Cycle Training.  As an Instructor Training Organisation [ITO], HCT also provides National Standards Instructors with opportunities for continuing professional development (CPD) and other services. Bikeability Instructors who deliver training for local authorities will need to ensure that they register with an ITO.
