Wiltshire County Council are offering "Bikeability" courses:
Summer 2012 Bikeability Levels 1 and 2 Courses at Five Rivers Leisure Centre offer a chance for children aged 10 to 12 years to catch-up with or to extend their knowledge. The courses are designed to give children (minimum age 10years) the skills and confidence to ride their bikes on today’s roads.
Level 1 is covered in a 'traffic-free environment’ and gives an opportunity for children to learn basic cycling skills, enabling them to make trips in traffic-free areas before proceeding onto the roads.
Level 2 is taught on quiet roads and teaches children the manoeuvres and skills necessary to be able to make journeys on minor roads, offering a real cycling experience.
Bikeability Levels 1 and 2 are taught as a 10 hour course over a two day period in the summer holidays. Courses are taught by fully qualified and CRB checked National Standard Instructors at a ratio of one trainer to six trainees. Dates and times are as follows:
Course 1 25th and 26th July 2012
Course 2 31st July and 1st August 2012
Course 3 8th and 9th August 2012
