We are sad to see her go, but lucky to still be able to call on her for her amazing advice and support. Thanks Elaine, good luck for the future! ... See MoreSee Less

Our first Big Bike Swap went well, here’s a few of the children who came away with bigger bikes and got a quick lesson with instructors before they rode away confidently! All bikes were checked by a qualified mechanics and the unclaimed bikes will be offered to local primary schools for children who do not have access to one. Many thanks to everyone for helping to make this little experiment work! Seeing these happy faces on new bikes, I reckon we will do it again! #recycling #bigbikesswao ... See MoreSee Less

Pleased to be working with www.nacro.org.uk as their recognised delivery centre. The existing instructors at Nacro are re qualifying and their team expanding. Go Velo will be doing their training and will also be supporting them in setting up their Bikeability scheme. Exciting times! #gottheballroling ... See MoreSee Less

New Careers in Bikeability: Simon

It is massively rewarding to see these children shine and succeed.

About This Project

For Simon, training as a Bikeability instructor has meant the opportunity to turn a hobby into a paid job and make a fresh start.

 

Originally working in local government providing consultancy services to schools, Simon had then trained as a Bikeability instructor to deliver a programme to local academies.

 

When he took early retirement from the academy trust, he approached Go Velo to see whether we had any vacancies for Bikeability instructors .

 

“I needed to supplement my pension with some other income. I was fortunate to be given the opportunity to deliver Bikeability and Learn to Ride to primary and secondary pupils.”

 

  

Training Children of All Abilities

 

Not every child is a natural cyclist, but all children can benefit from cycle training. At Go Velo, we aim to be inclusive, making sure everyone can have a go.

 

And it’s not just about the cycling. This cycle training also builds confidence and a greater sense of self-reliance and independence.

 

Bikeability offers cycle training to children of all abilities.

 

“I find it particularly rewarding to work with children who are not naturally gifted, but are willing to work hard.”

 

Simons finds it hugely satisfying to see these children succeed.

 

The Government plan has been to expand the Bikeability programme significantly, so that essential cycle and safety skills are offered to every child in England.

 

 

Training the Next Generation

 

Our most important asset at Go Velo is having Bikeability instructors who have a real personal stake in what they do, and in the training they deliver. They care about cycling and making it more accessible for others.

 

“I am now fulfilling my dream of being paid to do what was previously my hobby and working within the cycling industry. I try to pass on my love of cycling through my training.”

 

Simon is a lifelong cyclist, and now, as part of Go Velo, he’s passing on his enthusiasm for cycling to the next generation of riders.
