Bleadon Bikeability

Posted on 20th October, 2015



I’m a qualified cycle instructor delivering Bikeability (previously Cycling Proficiency) to our North Somerset schools.  My son hasn’t had the opportunity to take part in the Bikeability scheme at his school so I am offering to run a course in Bleadon on Tuesday 27th October for any other Bleadon children or grandchildren between the ages of 10 and 14 who have also missed out! 


Bikeability has 3 levels, Level 1 is for children to show us that they are able to ride their bikes with skills needed on the road, ie. Stopping, starting, looking around (particularly behind them) and able to ride with one hand for signalling.  Level 2 is taking the children on the road to use those skills which I would do around Bleadon village.  More information on Bikeability is HERE .


They would need roadworthy bikes although I may be able to help if a child doesn’t have one.


I would deliver Level 1 in the car park between 9 and 10.30 am and Level 2 between 10.30 am and 4pm with a break for lunch (children to bring a packed lunch or pop home and return).  The cost for the whole day would be £15 and would include badges and certificates.


To confirm, I am DBS certified and am also fully insured with documentation you are more than welcome to view.  In the last two weeks I have delivered Bikeability Level 2 in both Hutton and Uphill schools and keen to teach as many of our children as possible to ride safely on the roads. 


If anyone is interested, please contact me on 07976 410720 or via caroline.thewhitehouse@gmail.com for further information.  If you aren’t available on Tuesday but would be interested in taking part at a later date, please get in touch.


Many thanks,


Caroline Lance
