Swindon Holiday Courses

We run Bikeability Level 2 and Level 3 courses every school holiday (except Christmas) that teach small groups of children to cycle safely on the roads.

What does it cover?

  • Level 2 courses - children learn to control their bikes; anticipate other road users' behaviour and manoeuvre with confidence. Max. group size 6.
  • Level 3 courses - children learn to master challenging junctions, negotiate multi lane roads and do basic route planning. Max. group size 3.

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

Who is it for?

Your child must be able to cycle one-handed and look over their shoulder. These courses are not suitable for children who can only just cycle.


Thanks to funding from Swindon Borough Council, all courses are FREE for children who live in Swindon.

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.
