School Holiday Bikeability Courses


From February half term 2018 we are introducing Bikeability courses during the school holidays. A great opportunity for your child to take part if they missed out when we visited their school or if they would benefit from the course again.

All secondary schools are offered Bikeability Level 3 but we have very little take up, again the holday course provide an opportunity to take part.

Do check back regularly if there isn't a date for the course you want or email us and we will add you to the list.

These courses are free to children in Chesterfield and NE Derbyshire but we do need a deposit to secure a place (refundable when training takes place).

See below for age and competency requirements for each course.

Booking form here.
