Bikeability & Cycle Training

Our local partner, Avanti Cycling delivers cycle training for children and adults in Berkshire and Oxfordshire.


Avanti Cycling follows the Bikeability framework for delivering cycle training in schools:

  • Level 1 is the basic level of riding, usually delivered in traffic free areas, which covers bike control, braking, steering, signalling, bike checking and some awareness of the risks
  • Level 2 is the level suitable for people who will be riding primarily on quiet residential roads and covers starting and stopping, road positioning and passing  parked cars, and all forms of junctions, rear observation, but doesn’t cover roundabouts, traffic light controlled junctions or busy roads
  • Level 3 is the highest level and covers all road types and every eventuality…


Avanti Cycling provides free sessions for adults wanting to gain confidence riding a bike – either for commuting, exercise or just for fun. If you’ve never ridden a bike before Avanti Cycling will get you riding in no time, and if you can ride but want a bit of guidance, they can help with this too.

There is no charge for Adult training – all Avanti Cycling ask is that you complete a short questionnaire beforehand and provide feedback at the end of your session.

Avanti Cycling also offers School Holiday and Family Sessions.
