Training esssential to increase cycle journeys to school.

The Department for Transport  has  published a report looking at the number of children cycling to school since the introduction of the Bikeability scheme five years ago. In March the scheme celebrated five years of delivering training for children in schools.

This report shows that where there is a longer history of delivering cycle training, a higher proportion of children are cycling to secondary school.

Further, those authorities that have received higher levels of Bikeability funding have seen larger increases in cycling to secondary school.

Full details of the research can be viewed at –
