Our Bike Club project is a member of the National Bike Club Initiative that aims ‘to get more people cycling more often’.
Our Mountain Bike & Cycling programmes are centred on young people, basing everything on their needs and interests. Cycling can give young people freedom, independence, a practical (and environmentally friendly) means of transportation, improved health and well- being, a sense of adventure and lots of fun. Our programmes are designed to be safe, sustainable and can be a means of engaging young people through opening up new learning opportunities.
Cycling can easily be linked to a whole range of educational and other priorities and initiatives: the national curriculum, Healthy Schools, environmental sustainability, Community Focused Schools developments, the 7 Core Aims of Rights to Action (through Children and Young People’s Plans), Extending Entitlement, the National Youth Service Strategy for Wales and Cymry Ifanc – Supporting Young People aged 11–25 in Wales.
National Cycle Standards
Ignite UP deliver cycle training in line with the National Cycling Standards (2005). These standards are recognised by the Department for Transport, the Welsh Government, Safer Wales and RoSPA. The National cycling standards programme will equip young people with the skills and confidence to use roads in a safe, competent manner. Programmes balance practical skills and theoretical knowledge to ensure sessions are fun, interactive and develop young people to become confident and competent cyclists.
The National cycling standards are progressive and are delivered at:
Level 1: Undertaken in a traffic free environment.
Level 2: Undertaken on quiet roads with real traffic conditions.
Level 3: undertaken on busy roads with real traffic conditions and using complex road features.
