Bikeability Cycle Training in Leeds

Bikeability cycle training in Leeds is delivered by the Cycle Leeds Team of instructors. We recently re-branded and were previously Leeds Carnegie Bikeability but we are now an independent standalone entity.

This is the number of year 5/6 pupils we have trained over the past 3 years with our expanding bikeability programme:

  • 2009/10 – 1700
  • 2010/11 – 2550
  • 2011/12 – 2800
  • 2012/13 – 5000
  • 2013/14 – 5,500
  • 2014/15 – 6,000
  • 2015/16 - 6,300
  • 2016/17 - 6,500 also Level 3 - 500 and Bikeability Plus - 3,000

Our funding is already secured for next year and with an ever increasing pool of local instructors our aim is to train over 6500 pupils this academic year. We are also now booking high schools for Level 3 training.

Our Instructors

We currently employ 24 cycling instructors who come from all walks of life but are united in their enthusiasm and passion for cycling. They have all undergone an intensive four day course and been assessed on their ability to deliver the course effectively to the national standard. They are also in possession of a current Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) certifcate from Education Leeds or Leeds Met.

We hope to expand or team over the coming months and years so we can provide adequate cycle training for the city and expand beyond our present remit. If you’re interested in joining our growing team find our more or get in touch with Andrew Crossley, Bikeability Training Manager.
