CPD Accredited Courses
Delegates attending The Bicycle Society’s courses will receive a CPD Certificate of Attendance and can record their attendance towards their formal CPD requirements for their professional body, institute or employer.
The CPD Standards Office officially confirms that THE BICYCLE SOCIETY, REGISTERED PROVIDER No. 21211 has been successfully assessed as course provider, and has received formal independent CPD accreditation.
We can teach up to 8 teachers at a time to lead active curriculum lessons with bikes and perform basic bike maintenance. These CPD accredited courses run for 2 or 4 days.
"I have trained many students at age 10/11 in Yr 6 and I can say that those who have received cycle instruction
in a Biking School at an earlier age show much more confidence when introduced to cycling on the road."
Primary and Secondary Biking Schools
The Bicycle Society has taught in over 300 London schools. Biking Schools incorporate all of our services into sessions which build confident cyclists throughout the whole school.
We offer bespoke cycling programmes which can see a biking coach in school one day a week offering:
- Cycling activities
- Full school biking games
- After school clubs
- Classroom lessons
- TFL campaigns
- Bike loans
Attainment levels of each child is tracked during the year and certificates given when a child reaches a certain standard.
We have developed the Biking School Partnership with London Borough of Ealing Council, School Travel Planners and senior Councillors. Our work was rewarded with a Highly Commended award for Contribution to Cycling in the London Transport Awards 2014.
Primary Biking School
Nursery to year 6
The aim of the project is to increase the amount of pupils enjoying cycling through enrichment, skills based activities and to increase trips to school by bike. We have that our games based learning develops positive emotions towards cycling that keeps children wanting to learn more.
Secondary Biking School
Year 7- 6th form
Re-connect pupils with bikes in exciting and challenging ways. custom design programmes to tie in with busy school schedules
Eight pupils are selected from the eldest year group of the schools as Bike Monitors. These pupils develop ideas, incentives and campaigns for the school and local community. The bike monitors can work in partnership with any local authority campaign and have successfully delivered many TFL STARS projects.
"There is a noticeable difference in ability when teaching children from a Biking School.
The trainees are more confident and capable when they are introduced to cycling on roads".

“The ability of the children is really quite amazing, far better than any other year 5 class I’ve taught before.
The training they’ve done in year 3 and 4 has clearly made a big difference".
