The Bikeability Trust is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation with the vision to ensure everyone has the confidence to cycle and enjoy this skill for life. The Trust manages, develops and promotes the Bikeability programme on behalf of the Department for Transport.

Bikeability is the Department for Transport’s flagship national cycle training programme for schoolchildren in England, and is a key component of Gear Change. Bikeability cycle training is a practical training programme, which provides schoolchildren with a life skill and enables them to cycle confidently and competently on today’s roads. More than four million children have received Bikeability cycle training since the programme’s inception in 2007.The Trust aims to make Bikeability the leading programme for cycle training by ensuring:

  • Child focussed: We deliver cycle training to both children and adults, but the majority of delivery is helping children learn the life skill of cycling
  • Inclusivity: We take action to reduce barriers to participation and ensure that anyone who wishes to access Bikeability cycle training is able to
  • Efficiency: Our delivery programme offers value for money and is delivered in an economic and efficient way
  • Influence: We share our evidence of the impact of cycle training across a variety of sectors (transport, education, environment, health, leisure, etc)
  • Collaboration: We work with stakeholders, partners and commercial organisations to achieve our vision and ensure Bikeability is a household name
