On your bike!

Year 4 Bikeability


Our Year 4 students are on their bikes today!

They have been busy improving their control around the playground as they endeavour to complete Level 1 in bikeability!

The children have learned how to control and master their bike.

Once they’ve completed  Bikeability Level 1 they will also be able to:


  • Fit their own helmet
  • Carry out a simple bike check
  • Get on their bike, start cycling, then stop and get off
  • Ride the bike using the gears
  • Make their bike go where they want it to, including moving around objects safely
  • Control the bike with one hand
  • Stop quickly if need be
  • Look all around when you’re riding, including behind, without wobbling


Once this stage is complete, the children can step up towards level 2 and practice some road safety skills safely on the road.
