Aspire to Cycle for Secondary Schools
The Aspire to Cycle programme aims to develop your students cycling skills in a fun yet safe environment through a variety of initiatives.
Your school can access the following programmes:
- Aspire to Cycle Workshops
Did you know that the Government want every child to be equipped with a Bikeability qualification by the time they leave primary school?
How many of your students meet this recommendation?
Aspire have been delivering a first class Bikeability programme since 2009. Over this period:
- Schools reported that ALL students enjoyed the Bikeability provision
- 100% of schools would recommend our provision to another school
- ALL schools were completely satisfied with the overall service we provided to them
- More then 1,600 children have achieved Bikeability Level 1
- In excess of1,400 children have achieved Bikeability Level 2
Bikeability gives young people the skills and confidence to ride their bikes safely on the road. Cycling is healthy and fun but it's necessary to learn how to do it safely.
|"Aspire Sports have developed a course that is fun but never loses focus on safety. The course is accessible to all by providing a fleet of bikes that can be transported to any schools. Schools have been impressed with their ongoing communication, friendly nature, feedback and awards assemblies" Neil Dawson, Wilson Stuart Active Society|
To get their hands on a Bikeability award, your students will have to take part in the Government approved National Standard for Cycle Training.
- Level 1 offers basic bike handling skills in a controlled environment away from roads
- Level 2 teaches students to cycle planned routes on minor roads offering real cycling experience
- Level 3 ensures cyclists are able to manage all traffic conditions
Aspire can offer you Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 provision that is tailored around your setting and students needs. We can deliver each level separately or combine both Level 1 and 2.
A Level 1 course can be delivered over two hours for up to 16 pupils and a Level 2 over six hours for up to 10 students. A combined Level 1 and Level 2 course can accommodate up to 12 students at a time and can be delivered over four or two days.
Level 3 aims to let your students discover the full range of their cycling potential and is usually carried out on a 1:1 or 1:2 basis. It lasts a minimum of 2 hours.
The programmes are delivered from detailed planning and have key outcomes that must be achieved competently for each pupil to be rewarded with their badge and certificate.
Bikeability will equip your students with the necessary skills and knowledge needed to cycle safely throughout the rest of their life. Click here to read more about the Bikeability initiative or watch the video below.

Aspire to Cycle Workshops
Aspire to Cycle Workshops are ideal to help you towards a range of policies and initiatives such as sustainable school status, school travel planning, Every Child Matters and healthy school status.
You may just require some fun, alternative activities for your PE/ Sport themed weeks.
Whatever your requirements, the workshops are sustainable and give your students more fun on their bikes – whether riding around with friends, learning some new tricks or even aiming for Olympic gold!
|"A brilliant service run in a very professional manner. The instructors went out of their way to accommodate our needs. Our children loved the course and as a result have become more confident in riding their bikes to school" Mrs Atkins, PE Co-ordinator|
Our workshops are aimed at getting more young people involved in cycling and provide highquality coaching, delivered in a traffic-free environment. Whilst each workshop is practical based the programme can be tailored to incorporate classroom elements should you wish.
Aspire to Cycle Workshops are flexible and adapted to suit your needs. You decide on how many sessions you require, how long we work with a group and what activities we focus on. We can even cater for your teaching staff should they wish to participate!
They are run by instructors who are National Standard Instructor qualified and hold other cycling qualifications. They possess an enhanced CRB disclosure as well as being trained with relevant first aid and child protection qualifications.
We provide your setting with all of the necessary resources and equipment to ensure that each workshop runs safely and smoothly. Your students are expected to bring their own bikes and helmets when participating. However, in some circumstances we can provide the bikes and necessary safety equipment for them.
