Ten students from Melbourn Village College have taken part in a Bikeability course – designed for youngsters who can ride a bike and want to make on-road trips – and all achieved Level 3.
This level of ‘bikeability’ aims to develop competent cycling skills on busier, more complex roads. The course emphasises the importance of a positive attitudes towards sharing the road with other traffic and developing an understanding of how to interact effectively with other road users in various situations.
The students were encouraged to make informed independent decisions under the guidance of instructors from Cambridge-based Outspoken! Training.
The Bikeability scheme is the national standard for cycling.
The course is designed to equip cyclists with the knowledge, skill, and on-road experience to make a journey safely and confidently by bike on local roads.
