Cycling to School

Cycling can be a convenient and healthy way to get to school, contributing to the 60 minutes a day of physical activity recommended by the four Chief Medical Officers of the UK.

Barnet offers every child - in Year 5, 6 and in all secondary year groups - who attends a school in the borough, the opportunity to take part in cycle training. Bikeability training delivers valuable life skills for cycling safely and an all-round sense of road safety so it’s beneficial whether pupils are cycling to school or in their leisure time.

It is recommended that pupils do not cycle to school unless they have received appropriate cycle training to Bikeability level 2 or 3.

For more information about FREE Schools Cycle Training or for schools who wish to book a course, select one of the following Bikeability levels: Level 2 or Level 3.

In addition we run FREE Children's Group Cycle Training in the holidays. See Upcoming Events for more details.
