North Somerset Holiday Courses

We run Bikeability Level 3 courses during the school holidays to teach small groups of children and young people to cycle safely on the roads.

What does it cover?

Level 3 courses teach young people to master challenging junctions, negotiate multi lane roads and do basic route planning. Maximum group size is 6 young people, with 2 cycle instructors.

Training begins off-road, then moves onto local roads under instructor supervision. At the end of the course young people get certificates and badges and we provide feedback to parents on progress.

Who is it for?

Your child must be 11+ and be a confident cyclist who can ride one-handed and look over their shoulder. Click here to see the prior ability guide for Level 3.

What to bring

Your child will need to bring a roadworthy bike to use. UK law does not require you to wear a helmet. If you do it should fit correctly.


Level 3 courses are FREE for young people aged 11+ who live in North Somerset however due to the large number of 'no-shows' experienced we are introducing, from 2019, a £10 REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT. This money will be refunded directly to you once your child has attended the training.

Course format

Our courses are 2.5 hours long and are delivered at various locations, which will be published here.
