British Cycling has created online resources (including video clips) and information to help parents and children develop their cycling skills. I am sure some schools would be having Bikeright in this term to deliver the Level 1 & 2 Bikeability training. These resources and information do not replace Bikeability training but could help parents andchildren to develop their cycling skills during the lockdown period. The website resources and information are split up into 4 areas and links to each of the resources can be found below.
Teach Your Kids to Ride
Ready Set Ride activity resources that children and parents can watch online to introduce children to ride a bike in a safe manner (more likely for the Key Stage 1 children that need to learn how to ride)
