8.1. What is Bikeability?
Bikeability is the Department for Transport’s cycle training programme in England. It has been approved by the Cycle Training Standards Board as the curriculum for delivering the government’s National Standard for Cycle Training.
In England, Bikeability is funded by Active Travel England and distributed to local highway authorities (as grant recipients). The programme is then delivered by registered training providers and instructors. It can also be delivered by registered training providers through private funding.
Information on funded cycle training in Scotland and Wales may be found on government websites.
Instructors delivering Bikeability training must hold either:
- the Level 2 Award in Instructing Cycle Training or
- the ‘National Standard Instructor’ status (until 31 March 2024)
