Outspoken Amongst Finalists for BikeBiz Awards 2017
We are thrilled to have been announced as a finalist for the BikeBiz Awards 2017 celebrating the fantastic success our instructors have achieved this year!
2016 was a huge year for Outspoken with a record number of people enthused to cycle more and a big move to our new home, The Bike Depot. Some of the highlights include:
Bikeability Cycle Training
We trained over 12,000 children and adults throughout the East of England on a variety of courses and programmes, including awareness training for lorry drivers.
In total our 9 school projects result in an average 193% increase in cycling to school.
In the summer, we launched In Tandem, a partnership between ourselves and Camsight, the local visually impaired charity.
Bike Maintenance Training
Our mechanic training courses grew in variety and number and included weekend introductory courses, specialist Women’s-only sessions, courses specifically for young people and professional Velotech courses in our brand new Park Tool training workshop.
Instructor Training and Development
Over 150 existing instructors came on one of our CPD courses.
Initial National Standard Instructor (4 day) training provided to over 50 new instructors.
Mechanic staff were upskilled with Velotech Gold, Cytech Level 2 and EAL Level 3 courses attended.
The final will take place on Thursday 16th February 2017. Fingers and toes crossed!
