Cycling Proficiency for the 21st Century

Bikeability is the Cycling Proficiency Test for the 21st century, designed to give the next generation the skills and confidence to ride their bikes on today's roads. There are three Bikeability levels and children will be encouraged and inspired to achieve all three levels, recognising that there is always more to learn and to enjoy on a bike.

Why is Bikeability important?

Bikeability is Cycling Proficiency for the 21st Century. It provides appeal and incentive for children and parents alike to undertake quality cycle training to ride safely and well on today's roads. Cycle training is the vital life-skill required before 'more children cycling, more safely, more often' can become a reality, and all the associated benefits of a new generation of young people cycling can be realised - including better health and fitness for cyclists and less congestion for us all.

How does Bikeability promote health and safety?

Cycling promotes good health and longer life. Any risks associated with cycling for both children and adults are far outweighed by the benefits of a healthy, active lifestyle. Growing levels of inactivity directly increases the likelihood of illnesses such as coronary heart disease, which now kills more than more than 100,000 people in England every year.

Cycling for at least 30 minutes a day gives people a level of fitness equivalent to being 10 years younger. In terms of life-years gained and lost, the Government acknowledges that the health benefits of cycling far outweigh any risks involved - by a factor of 20:1 according to information provided by CTC, the UK's national cyclists' organisation.
