New Careers in Bikeability: Leanne

I get to work with children, and it’s about inspiring children to ride their bikes.

About This Project

A cycle instructor needs more than bike riding experience. This role requires a genuine ability to teach and encourage others. Becoming a cycle instructor means being able to relate to people, and knowing how to help them get the best out of themselves.

 

Bikeability instructors often work with children, supporting them in building their confidence and skills.

 

Leanne trained as a primary school teacher initially, but when she became a Bikeability instructor, she was able to use this experience in her new role.

 

“I always wanted to combine my love of working with children with my love of cycling. I completed my training and then became a Bikeability instructor with Go Velo. The job is perfect for me.”

 

To become a Bikeability instructor requires a Level 2 Award in Instructor Cycle Training. This qualifies instructors to teach groups of school children, as well as help adults enhance their cycling skills.

 

Originally training with Kirsti Grayson, Go Velo’s Director, Leanne gained the essential skills required to provide cycle instruction.

 

“In Go Velo, I’m lucky I managed to find such a dedicated and professional Bikeability provider. I’ve always been given the support and guidance I needed right from the beginning, to fulfil my potential.”

 

 

Why Children’s Cycle is Rewarding

 

In a Bikeability Trust survey, over a third of parents have said that their child feels less stressed and more relaxed from cycling with the family.

 

Not only does Bikeability teach children practical cycling skills, but it can also support their wellbeing, and it helps build their confidence and sense of independence.

 

For Leanne, it’s been a rewarding job, combining her experience of working with children with her dream of working outdoors every day.

 

“I can truly say I have a job I love.”
