Bikeability is the modern day cycling programme which teaches children practical skills and gives them the understanding and expertise to cycle safely on the road. Funded by the Department for Transport, the programme features 3 levels which children can progress through as their cycling skills improve.
SHAPE Learning Partnership commission the amazing team at Wheely Fun Wheels to deliver the programme for all schools across Chesterfield and North East Derbyshire. During the locked-down summer months, the Wheely Fun team have been hard at work providing high quality training to young people across the district. Places were made available free of charge and snapped up instantly. To date, over 90 children will be accessing the training during the six week hoilday period. The impact of the programme on young people is there to see, with many parents speaking highly of both the team and the programme:
'My son absolutely loved the experience and was thrilled with how much he did'
'She had a wonderful time and really enjoyed it and learnt a lot...she is looking forward to doing more training!!'
'The instructors were really nice and approachable...would definitely recommend'
