More schoolchildren across England will now learn essential cycling skills thanks to a £13 million government investment in Bikeability, following a record year for the cycle training programme.

Around 400,000 children had completed the scheme in the year up to April 2019 while the total number trained since Bikeability was launched in 2006 has now reached 3 million.

Children that cycle regularly are more likely to become active adults that are confident and safe cyclists.
